Gur Pare - Traditional Sweet

Gur pare is a kind of traditional sweet cooked during occasions like Diwali, Holi and Wedding too.
It is made of whole wheat flour or all purpose flour and dipped in Gur/jaggery syrup afterwards.Today we are going to make healthier version of it with whole wheat flour and jaggery/gur added in dough itself.


2 cup wheat flour/atta
1/2 cup semolina/sooji
Jaggery/gur Slightly more than 1/2 cup
Ghee 1/4 cup
Saunf  3-4 tbsp
Oil for deep frying

Method: Put 1/2 cup water to boil in one open pan and add jaggery mix it till it get dissolved in water.Strain it and keep this gur syrup on side. Now mix wheat,sooji,ghee and saunf in one bowl with hand and add gur syrup slowly slowly ,knead dough and cover it and leave it aside for 15-20 mins.Dough should be hard not soft like we knead for chapatis.

After 15- 20 mins we will make a big ball from dough and press it flat with our hands and roll it on rolling board by applying dry wheat flour on board with help of rolling pin into 1/2 cm thick round.Cut it from edges and than cut into small pieces as per your choice.

Heat oil in kadhi/wok when its medium hot than start frying gur pare in oil.Fry them on low flame and side by side prepare gur pare from remaining dough.When they are brown in color turn them over and fry from other side too till they are golden brown from both sides.

Place them over kitchen towel to soak excessive oil and let them cool completely.Store them in air tight container and enjoy after your meal or with tea.

They are rich in iron and healthy too so eat it as much as you want :)
