Malai Ghevar

In Rajasthan and particularly in Jaipur, Ghevar holds a special place as the most popular sweet. It is a cherished tradition to prepare Ghevar during Raksha Bandhan. For those seeking an easy and simple Ghevar Banane Ka Tarika, look no further - we have the perfect Malai Ghevar recipe for you to enjoy this delectable treat!

Malai Ghevar

Malai Ghevar Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 1/4 cup Rufil ghee
  • 1/2 cup Rufil milk
  • 1 cup chilled water
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • A pinch of saffron strands
  • 1 cup malai (thickened cream)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • A few sliced almonds and pistachios for garnish
  • Ghee or oil for deep frying

Step By Step Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and Rufil ghee. Mix it well until the flour resembles bread crumbs.
  2. Gradually add chilled water and Rufil fresh milk to the flour-ghee mixture while stirring continuously. The batter should be smooth and free of lumps.
  3. Add cardamom powder and saffron strands to the batter and mix thoroughly. Allow the batter to rest for about 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the malai by whisking it in a separate bowl until it becomes smooth and fluffy. Gradually add powdered sugar to the malai and continue to whisk until well combined. The malai mixture should have a creamy consistency.
  5. Now, heat ghee or oil in a deep frying pan or kadhai over medium heat. Take a Ghevar mould (a round perforated metal ring used to shape the Ghevar) and place it in the hot ghee.
  6. Pour a ladleful of the batter into the mould carefully. The batter will spread and sizzle, forming a lacy pattern. Allow it to cook until the Ghevar becomes crisp and golden brown. Gently remove the Ghevar from the mould and drain excess oil by placing it on a paper towel.
  7. While the Ghevar is still warm, generously spread the prepared malai mixture on top of it. Garnish with sliced almonds and pistachios.

Rabdi Ghevar

Rabdi Ghevar is another popular variation of Ghevar. Surprise your siblings on this auspicious occasion by preparing the delicious Rabdi Ghevar at home. Not sure about Rabdi Ghevar Kaise Bante Hai? No worries! Here's the recipe for you to try out and enjoy!

Rabdi Ghevar Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 1/2 cup Rufil ghee
  • 1/2 cup Rufil Fresh milk
  • 1 cup Rabdi (thickened sweetened milk)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • A pinch of saffron strands (soaked in 1 tablespoon warm milk)
  • Chopped nuts for garnish (almonds, pistachios, etc.)
  • Edible silver leaf (optional) for garnish

Step By Step Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour (maida) and ghee, and mix well to form a smooth batter. The consistency should be thick and pourable.
  2. Heat ghee in a deep frying pan or a Ghevar mould pan. Pour a ladleful of the batter into the hot ghee in a circular motion, starting from the centre and moving outward. This will create a net-like pattern. Make sure to leave some space in the centre for the Rabdi.
  3. Fry the Ghevar on medium heat until it turns golden and crisp. Remove the Ghevar from the pan and drain excess ghee by placing it on a plate lined with absorbent paper. Allow it to cool completely.
  4. In a thick-bottomed pan, heat milk and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat and let it simmer until the milk reduces to half the original quantity, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add sugar, cardamom powder, and saffron-soaked milk to the reduced milk. Continue simmering and stirring until the Rabdi thickens to a creamy consistency. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  6. Place the prepared Ghevar on a serving plate. Pour the prepared Rabdi into the centre of the Ghevar, filling the space left earlier.
  7. Garnish the Rabdi Ghevar with chopped nuts and edible silver leaf (if using).
  8. Chill the Rabdi Ghevar in the refrigerator for an hour before serving to allow the flavours to meld.
