How to Make Ghewar

  1. Prepare the sugar syrup with 1 thread of consistency. Take solidified ghee in a large large bowl. Taking one ice cube at a time, vigorously rub the ghee.
  2. Take more ice cubes as needed, until the ghee turns very white.
  3. Add milk, flour and a cup of water and make smooth paste.
  4. Dissolve the color in water and add it to the paste. Add more water if necessary. The dough should be quite thin.
  5. Take a cylindrical container of aluminum or steel. The height must be at least 12 “. Half fill the container with ghee. Heat it.
  6. When the ghee is hot and smoky, take a 50 ml glass full of dough. Pour into the center of the ghee, slowly in a single continuous stream. Let the foam settle. Pour another glass into the hole in the center.
  7. When the foam falls, loosen the ghewar with an iron skewer inserted in the hole. Carefully lift, diagonally, and place on wire mesh to drain. Store the hot syrup in a large, flat-bottomed container to fit in the ghevar. Dip the ghevar in and remove it, set aside on the mesh to drain the excess syrup.
  8. Alternatively, pour a little syrup evenly everywhere, keeping the ghevar in a net placed on a container. Let cool a little, cover with silver foil.
  9. Sprinkle with a few drops of saffron milk, sprinkle with chopped dried fruit and a few pinches of cardamom powder.
  10. Serve. You can also serve ghevar with rabri prepared in advance.
