Ghevar/Ghewar- a Rajasthani Sweet
- 3 Comments
With the festival of Raksha Bandhan just around the corner, what better recipe than that of Ghewar ?? Before moving on to the recipe, let me shed some light on Raksha Bandhan. It is a festival that celebrates the relationship between brothers and sisters, where in the sisters tie a Rakhi around their brothers’ wrist. This symbolizes the sister’s love and prayers for her brother’s well-being, and the brother’s lifelong vow to protect her. Now those of you who are wondering what a Ghewar is, not to worry, I will explain that as well. Ghewar is a Rajasthani sweet served best with Rabdi. The trick of making this sweet lies in the process of frying it
The first time I tasted Ghewar was last year when a Rajasthani friend of mine shared it with me. What intrigued me the most was it’s texture. Though I had zeroed in a recipe, it was only now that I tried it. I got the recipe from NishaMadhulika’s blog. I did tweak the recipe a bit. Here’s the video of preparing Ghevar
Ghevar, if not soaked in sugar syrup, can be stored for upto 15 days.
