About Oats and Dates Sukhdi Recipe
SUKHDI also know as GORPAPDI (Gor means jaggery and papdi means a thin layer) is a fudge from Gujarat. Since the bygone days Sukhdi performs the role of an energy bar and holds a prominent place in our state's food-scape. It's an 'all in one' meal/ food sometimes compensating the need to Dal-Roti-Subzi (especially during travels)!! A small square of this sweet is enough to keep the hunger pangs at bay for a couple of hours. These square or diamond shaped 'pick me up' bars feature regularly in school lunch boxes. Sukhdi has been part of our snack boxes during school picnics or trips and trips when mothers would pack food for those 'just in case' moments. The extremely high nutritional value of these bars have brought it on the menu of two very important state run nutritional programs , the Integrated Child Development Scheme -ICDS designed for the pregnant and lactating women and children up to the age of 5 and the Mid-Day-Meal program in the government run primary schools. It was and continues to be a perfect travel partner for the ever travelling Gujaratis.
