Garam Golpapdi

Ek tha Bachpan when Amma used
to make Gul Papdi.

In case you do not know what it is then it's a sweet
powder make out of wheat flour and jaggery. We used to put a big
spoonful in the mouth and say “Fufi” and the powder came out in puffs! Silly I know but fun, just imagine girls
in STD VIII, IX &X doing this!!


Then I forgot all about it. When I saw
this recipe that I had copied from Tarla Dalal it revived all
those carefree days. How I miss them now!!

So before we get straight to the recipe
let me tell you that the original recipe called for Khus-Khus which I have
replaced with Til or Sesame seeds. 

 Garam Gulpapdi

Recipe source Tarla Dalal


1 cup whole wheat flour

½ cup ghee

1 tsp til/sesame seeds

½ cup grated jaggery

½ tsp elichi/ green cardamom


1.  Roast
the til/sesame seeds till they become light brown on law flame in a kadhai/wok.

2.     Heat
ghee in kadhai/wok.

3.     Add the
whole wheat flour roast on low flame till golden brown stir continuously.

4.    Add til/sesame
seeds cook for few more seconds

5.     Remove
from flame stir and cool it a little.

6.     Add jaggery and
elichi/ green cardamom stir. The jaggery will dissolve.

7.    In case
it does not return to flame.

8.     Serve

This hardens in case it cools down so
serve immediately. Since I did not know this I let it stay like a lump it was.
Next time it gets shaped. In my Office the hardened   hard chiki or brittle we all

 P.S. Use 1-2 tbsp milk after the jaggery. The original recipe called for this and I forgot.
