Winter is here and so is the time for indulgence. Winter brings along an extensive range of delicacies that tug at our heart strings. And we all will probably agree that controlling our cravings during this situation is not an easy job. In fact, gajak, ladoos and halwa take us on a bingeing spree, keeping all our weight gain worries at bay. What makes these winter delicacies yet more interesting is the fact that you find different variations in different regions of India. For instance, you get pitha in Bengal and gajak in Punjab. Then we have sukhdi from Gujarat. Sukhdi (or gud papdi) is a sweet dish made with jaggery, atta and ghee. To it, we add different other ingredients to make this winter recipe yet more delicious.
