Meetha Gud ka Parantha is my grandmom’s recipe which is filled with so much love! Delicious dry fruits are powdered and added with jaggery to make a kickass filling and put in as a stuffing to create an amazing dish!
What? Is it day 7 already? Time flew this time. A week just got over, without me even realizing it! And, like they say, it is best to end the meal with a dessert. So we end our marathon with something sweet too, a sweet parantha. The memories of this parantha for me go back to my badi mummy (granny, mother’s mom). I remember we running up to her asking for meetha gud ka parantha and she taking her mortar and grinding the almonds and cashews in it. Then she would sowly adding the jaggery to it and we would stand there watching in fascination while the nuts turned into powder and slowly into a gooey filling to be stuffed into yummy sweet paranthas.
I bet we all have our food memories. Especially the childhood ones which are associated with loads of treats from grandparents. My badi mummy was an amazing cook! Everything she cooked would taste so yummy and magical. As a child I loved eating food which she had made. Whether it was her nankhatais, or her channa dal filled karelas, there was pretty much nothing that I could resist 🙂
Now when I got married and came to N’s house, there are some of his grandmom’s recipes which we have adapted so well to our daily food habits. Like the Diwali special breakfast of chicken curry and dosas or granny’s amazing raw mango rasam. Each recipe is unique in it’s way and each is so treasured in the family! Sometimes, I am glad I have this blog because for me, this is a virtual record of all the amazing recipes I plan to pass on to my son 🙂
So what are you waiting for? make this amazing meetha gud ka parantha and be in food heaven after that 🙂
