Today I am sharing a very delicious Rice Delicacy i.e Gud Ke Chawal. The first time I heard about this sweet rice was when I got married. At my in-laws’ place, they all were very fond of this sweet delicacy.

My Mom In Law’ taught me how to make Gud Ke Chawal. I wanted to dedicate this recipe to her, Gud ke chawal or jaggery rice basically originated in Pakistan. Although, is very popular in Punjab also and even in Kashmir. Long grain Basmati rice cooked in jaggery syrup and flavoured with cardamom, sauf and the bay leaf makes this rice super tasty.

My in-laws are Punjabis and Punjab has a lot of influence of Pakistan. Perhaps, this is where they learnt how to make gud walay chawal.  She used to make this rice to pamper me while I was pregnant. I always remember her, whenever I make this sweet rice. However, she was a super cook, I will never be able to match her level of cooking.

Notes

  • instead of a cooker, you can use the pan and cook the rice this way rice does not get mushy
  • Jaggery burns quickly, so cook the rice at medium heat. you can use the microwave also to dumpukht the rice.
  • I always use rice and water in the proportion of 1:2. If you want a slightly mushy rice texture, you could increase the water proportion. For ¾ cup of rice, we used 1.5 cups of water. Instead of 1.5 cups of water, you could add 2 cups of water.
