Gujarati Patra and Sukhadi: Cookout @ Hacker modular kitchen in Ahmedabad


Chef Chetna Patel hosts the cookout session in the swanky Hacker modular kitchen showroom in Ahmedabad. The seasoned chef prepares two traditional Gujarati dishes in the luxury kitchen– an appetizer- Gujarati Patra, and a dessert, Sukhadi.  Let’s learn about these items before we delve deeper into the recipes.


Gujarati Patra: The Gujarati Patra, also known as the Alu Vadi, is a widely popular dish served as an appetizer, snack, or even as a side dish to the meal. The star ingredient is colocasia leaves coated with a gram flour combination.


Sukhadi:  Sukhadi is a traditional Gujarati dessert known as gorpapdi in Rajasthan. It is a simple three-ingredients delectable recipe that gets prepared during festivals.

Now, check out how to prepare these two dishes in your modular kitchen.  
Gujarati Patra: 
Recipe for Patra:
The Ingredients: 
Arbi Leaves – 5 To 6

Besan Flour – 150 Gm

Wheat Flour – 1 Tbsp

Jowar Flour – 1Tbsp

Turmeric Powder – 1 Tsp

Garam Masala -1/2 Tsp

Ajwain – 1/4 Tsp

Roughly Crushed Peanut – 1/4 cup

Dhaniya Jeera Powder – 1 Tbsp

Fennel Seeds – 1 Tbsp

Salt – To Taste

Ginger Chilli Paste -1 Tbsp

Imli Paste – 1 /2Cup

Gud – 1Tbsp

Peanut oil – 3 Tbsp

Water – 1/2 Cup or as Required

Baking Soda – 1 Tsp

Lemon – 1/2
Oil – 1/8 Cup

Mustard Seed – 1/2 Tbsp

Sesame Seeds – 1/2 Tbsp

Asafoetida – Pinch

Turmeric Powder – Pinch

Lemon Juice – 1/2 Tbsp
The Method: 

Step 1: The crucial step to preparing the Gujarati Patra is to prepare the colocasia leaves or Arbi Leaves. Clean the leaves and remove the vein that runs along the length of the leaves. Wash these leaves thoroughly, ensuring they are clean, and dry them.


Step 2: The second step is to prepare the gram flour paste. For that, take a bowl and add gram flour, wheat flour, jowar flour, half a teaspoon of turmeric powder, garam masala powder, and Ajwain. Crush the Ajwain in your hands before adding it to the mixture.


Now add roughly crushed peanuts. Dhaniya Jeera Powder, fennel seeds, salt to taste, Ginger chilli paste, and imli pulp paste are followed by jaggery or Gud. Now add peanut oil and water. Mix the batter by hand for 2-3 minutes until the batter changes color. When it reaches a thick consistency, add a pinch of baking soda and a dash of lemon juice. Now mix the batter with a light hand. 


Step 3: The next step is to spread the batter evenly on each leaf. After spreading the batter on all the leaves, layer them carefully, one on top of the other. Prepare each of the two leaves and make a tight roll. You will steam them next.



Step 4:  It is time to get your steamer ready. Grease the plate with oil, place the rolls carefully, and use a brush to grease each roll to ensure they do not dry up when streamed and retain their green color. Place the rolls in the oven in your modular kitchen to steam at 100 degrees for 30–40 minutes.

Step 5:  Take out the rolls and cut them into even-sized small pieces. 

Step 6:  Prepare the tadka by adding oil to a kadai. Add mustard seeds and wait for the mustard seeds to crackle. Once the seeds crackle, add curry leaves, sesame seeds, and a pinch of Asafoetida. Finally, add the steamed patras to the tadka. Mix lightly, ensuring that tadka evenly coats all the patras, and take them off the flame.

Step 7:  The final step is to plate the patras and serve them with green chutney.
The Ingredients 
Ghee – 1 cup

Wheat Flour (Fine) – 2 Cup

Gond – 2 Tbsp

Fresh Malai – 2 Tbsp

Jaggery – 1cup

The Method:


While the chef put the patras to steam in the oven, she quickly whipped up this aromatic and mouthwatering dessert Sukhadi. 


Step 1: Heat ghee in a pan and add two cups of flour. Roast the mix on a medium-high flame by stirring slowly but continuously, ensuring it does not get burned. The color of the mixture will change to golden brown, and it will become aromatic.


Step 2: Once the flour turns golden brown, add gond. Mix it lightly and gently roast it until it puffs up. Add fresh malai to the mix. Now add gud or Jaggery and mix well. If the jaggery is hard, then grate it and add.


Step 3: Take the mixture off the flame. Take a greased tray and spread the mixture, leveling it with a spatula. To enhance the flavor, add dry coconut or dried fruits as per preference. Let it cool.


Step 4: Now plate the Sukhadi by cutting it into the desired shape and serve. You can also store them for a couple of days.


With that, this aromatic and yummy cooking session ends. Did you enjoy learning today’s recipes? We are sure you did, and can’t wait to prepare both in your Hacker modular kitchen. Hacker modular kitchens are sturdy and tropicalized. Visit a Hacker kitchen showroom near you today.
