What if I tell you, Gluten Free folks can also enjoy this Gujarati Treat?
🔆 GOR PAAPADI - Gluten Free
I grew up eating Sukhadi and did not know about Gor Paapadi's existence until I got married. They are similar and different. This is normally made with wheat flour, ghee and gaud.
When you get to go to India next time and are traveling around Gujarat be sure to go to Mahudi and visit the Jain temple there because the "SUKHADI" Prasad there is really good and know this will not be gluten free at all.
My mother in law is known for the soft and delicious Gor Paapadi she makes and as she is stuck in India with the quarantine stuff going on, one of the things I miss is her GF Gor Paapadi and Magas. Fear not though her sister, my Masi sasu has my back and she makes this for me as well. So blessed to have these women in my life.
