This is Sukhadi - a traditional Gujarati dessert, made in many homes on special days. One of my favorites since childhood, I remember going to Mahudi to the temple of Lord Ghanatakarna Mahavir. The Sukhadi used to be served as a Prasad, and we would get entire trays of this for the family.The only restriction was that this Sukhadi be eaten within the temple grounds. Taking it out of the grounds would result in a series of unfortunate events. Abiding by this law, my mother would make sure it was all gone by the time we left! That Sukhadi was sweet, soft, buttery and totally delicious. Here is my version, try it sometime:
- 1 cup - Whole Wheat Flour
- 1/2 cup - Grated Jaggery
- 3/4 cup - Ghee
- 1 tsp- Cardamom Powder
- 2 tbsps- Milk
Here are some baby pictures I would like to share.....my little tiger has come a long way!
Here he is today, a bundle of energy and laughs......this kid really knows me inside out, an old soul perhaps?
Happy Birthday, My Son.
