Gur ka Paratha Recipe is another sweet flat bread that I made for the A – Z flatbread series that we are doing this month.

Whenever Dad talks about his childhood,he fondly remembers the sweet chapathi that his grandma would dish out for the kids.

He tells us that the gooey jaggery pieces in the chapathi was a kids favorite and he used to love eating those.


I never actually made jaggery parathas till now but would keep telling myself to make it one day soon.

Then when I was looking for recipes to post for this series, this one popped up and I looked up the net to see if there is actually any such dish.

And there it was!Several versions actually. I choose Vaishali’s recipe as it had another special ingredient- Almond meal.

This is the mega marathon and it does need a special ingredient right! So I made this recipe and all of us enjoyed it.

Gur is jaggery in Hindi and these are a winter specialty made in many parts of North India.

The pics didn’t turn out quite well the first time and neither the second time I made these.

I hope one day I will come back to this post and update it with better pics. But I can vouch for the taste right now!

  1. Excellent and healthy filling for Paratha PJ, i was looking for a coconut-jaggery filling and here you are with a different filling. Too good. Those parathas looks prefect to pack in a kid’s lunch box as well.

  2. Almond meal and jaggery sounds delightful! And yes, mega marathons do need special and unique ingredients and dishes. Way to go! And the pics look gorgeous …makes me want to grab the paratha from the screen

  3. I love such recipes which have a story behind them, some nostalgic memories attached. They are the best and they taste the best as well. Lovely Gur ka paratha, PJ. My first choice was this one as well 🙂

  4. Wow, wow, Wow! The filling with almond and jaggery sounds fantastic. This is one easy version of making poli. Looks absolutely delicious PJ.
