Mashala Sukhadi / Katalu and Difference between "Somebody You Love" & "Somebody You Like"

This sweet is made in winter for good health. This is original the same process of Sukhadi or Gud papadi but we add another ingredients so it’s become healthy and benefit in winter. In Gujarat the ready made masala is available and we call it as Katalu. This katalu is all type herbals things in it. I was used famous masala of Katalu known as “Sutariya Masala”.

250gm wheat flour (Atta)
200gm jaggery (Gud)
150gm ghee
25 gm Katalu (sukhadi masala)
25 gm dry grated coconut
25gm edible gum (Gaund)

Step 1: Finely chopped the jaggery and keep aside.

Step 1: Heat the half of the ghee in pan and fry edible gum on medium flame. Step 2: Finely crashed fried edible gum and keep aside.

Step 3: Add remaining ghee and add wheat flour in heat ghee on medium flame.

Step 4: Mix flour and ghee very nicely and roasted in low flame.

Step 5: Roasted the flour with continuously stirring until it comes out to brown color.

Step 6: When the flour is roasted well turn off the flame and add fry chopped edible gum.

Step 7: Mix well and after that add 25 gm ready made sukhadi masala (Katalu) and grated coconut in it. Step 8: Turn off the flame and add chopped jaggery in it.

Step 10: Mix this mixture quickly and thoroughly.
Step 11: Spread very well in flat big plate.

Step 12: Cut it in square shape or diamond shape within 2-3 minutes.

Step 13: Let it cool for sometimes and after that store in container.

1. If you like then add finely chopped almond and cashew before add the jaggery in it.

Difference between "Somebody You Love" & "Somebody You Like"
1 - In front of the person you love, your heart beats faster, But in front of the person you like, you get happy.

2 - in front of the person you love, winter seems like spring. Butin front of the person you like, winter is just beautiful winter.

3 - If you look into the eyes of the one you love, you blush. Butif you look into the eyes of the one you like, you smile.

4 - In front of the person you love, you can't say everything on your mind. Butin front of the person you like, you can.

5 - In front of the person you love, you tend to get shy. Butin front of the person you like, you can show your own self.

6 - You can't look straight into the eyes of the one you love. Butyou can always smile into the eyes of the one you like.

7 - When the one you love is crying, you cry with them. Butwhen the one you like is crying, you end up comforting.

8 - The feeling of love starts from the eye Butthe feeling of like starts from the ear.

So if you stop liking a person you used to like, all you need to do is cover your ears. But if you try to close your eyes, love turns into a drop of tear and remains in your heart forever...

Love gol papdi and katlu.

I would love to make this dish. Is it possible to make it without the katlu powder. I am not sure if it's available here.
