Rajasthani Ghevar Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 5 cups water
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup ghee(for the batter)
  • 2 cups ghee(for deep frying ghevar)
  • ½ tsp. saffron(kesar) soaked in milk
  • ¼ tsp. yellow food colour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp. almonds(chopped)
  • 2 tsp. pistachios(chopped)
  • 1 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 5-6 drops kewra essence

Rajasthani Ghevar Recipe Method:

  • In a bowl, take the milk and 1 cup ghee and mix well. Add the flour and water to it and mix to obtain a batter of uniform consistency.
  • Add food colour and kewra essence to the remaining water and add it to the batter. The batter must be smooth and without lumps.
  • Take an aluminium or steel cylinder with a height of at least 12’’ and 5-6’’ in diameter.
  • Fill half the cylinder with ghee and heat it.
  • When the ghee is hot, add about a glass of the batter to the ghee. This will cause the foam to rise.
  • Allow the foam to settle and add another glass of batter, as per the size of ghevar desired.
  • Take care to add the batter at the centre of the hot ghee such that it spreads out and fills the corners of the container.
  • Using a skewer, pierce the ghevar at some places to loosen it. Let it fry for about 2 minutes until it changes colour.
  • Remove the fried ghevar from the ghee carefully using skewers and drain out the excess oil.
  • Allow it to cool.
  • Take 2 cups of sugar along with 3 cups of water and heat it in a pan until it comes to a boil. Lower the flame and let it oil for another 7 to 8 minutes.
  • Take a small amount of syrup in a bowl and allow it to cool. Check whether it is of 1 thread consistency. Once the syrup is of 1 thread consistency, remove it from the heat.
  • Put the sugar syrup in a flat bottomed container and dip the ghevar in it. After a few minutes, drain out the excess syrup.
  • Let it cool for a few minutes and top it with the pistachios, almonds and cardamom powder.
  • Ghevar is ready to serve now.
