Ingredients for Ghevar - SK Khazana Recipe

  • Refined flour (maida) (210 grams) 1 3/4 cups

  • Cornflour 1 tablespoon

  • Ghee (45 grams) melted ghee, at room temperature 1/4 cup

  • Baking soda 1/4 teaspoon

  • Sugar (500 grams) 2 cups

  • Milk 1 teaspoon

  • Saffron a pinch

  • Green cardamom powder a pinch

  • Ghee for deep-frying

  • Rabdi as required

  • Dried rose petals as required

  • Almonds slivers as required

  • Silver wark as required


Step 1

Take ghee in a large bowl and add 3-4 ice cubes and mix well with your hand moving in circular motion till the mixture becomes white.

Step 2

Add refined flour, cornflour and baking soda and mix. Add 1 cup water and continue to mix with your hand till smooth. Add 2 more cups water and keep mixing, ensuring that that the ghee and water do not separate. If necessary add more water and mix to get a batter of coating consistency.

Step 3

Keep the batter in a cool place away from heat, but not in a refrigerator.

Step 4

Take sugar in a non-stick pan, add 1 cup water and cook stirring till the sugar dissolves. Add milk and mix well. Collect the scum which rises to the surface with a ladle and discard. Cook till the syrup reaches a one-string consistency. Add saffron and green cardamom powder and mix well. Remove from heat and keep warm.

Step 5

Heat sufficient ghee in a non-stick kadai on medium and place a round mold measuring 3½ inch in circumference and 2-inch in height in the center, so that three-fourth of the height of the mold is immersed in ghee.

Step 6

When the ghee is hot enough, pour one ladle of batter into the center of the mold in a thin stream. When the froth settles down, pour in another ladle of batter into the mold in a thin stream.

Step 7

When the froth settles down, make a hole in the center of the ghevar with a thin wooden skewer or satay stick and pour another ladleful of batter into the hole. Increase the heat and fry the ghevar, ladling hot ghee over it 2-3 times.

Step 8

When the center is firm and cooked, gently pull out the ghevar from the mold with a wooden skewer inserted in the center. Hold it over the kadai till most of the ghee drains away. Keep it on a rack placed on a plate and pour sugar syrup over it. . Spread rabdi on top, sprinkle some pistachio slivers, dried rose petals, almond slivers and silver warq. Make more ghevars similarly.

Step 9

Place the ghevars on a serving platter and serve.
