How to Make Gool Papdi Che Ladoo-Vadi (Burfi)

  • Heat ghee in a large wok and roast the flour in it for 10-20 mins over medium heat till the flour turns golden brown.
  • Chop the jaggery into fine thin slivers and measure it.
  • On a griddle, roast the poppy seeds. When cooled, grind them into a powder.
  • On the same griddle, roast the grated coconut also on medium heat till golden brown.
  • Heat oil in a wok and deep-fry the poha, putting in a little at a time, till it turns golden and crisp.
  • Flip the poha flakes occasionally to make sure they do not burn or over-fry.
  • Remove as quickly as possible from the oil and drain on a paper towel.
  • Crush them into a fine powder.
  • When the flour has cooled, warm the wok, add all the other ingredients and mix till the jaggery melts.
  • If you are making ladoos, form a little gool papdi into a smooth ball using your palms to shape and roll it.
  • Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  • When all the ladoos are done, they should be cool and firm.
  • Store in a flat box.
