Like other tradiitonal Diwali customs, Ghevar can also be counted as one of them.
1¾ cups refined flour (maida)
3 tbsps ghee + for deep frying
3-4 ice cubes
1 tbsp corn flour
¼ tsp baking soda
2 cups sugar
1 tbsp milk
A large pinch of saffron
¼ tsp green cardamom powder
Rabdi to serve
10-12 pistachios, blanched, peeled and slivered
Dried rose petals for garnish
Slivered almonds for garnish
Silver warq for garnish
1. In a large bowl, add 3 tbsps ghee and ice cubes and mix for 4-5 minutes using your hand till the mixture becomes pale and fluffy.
2. Add flour in the same bowl, add corn flour and baking soda and mix well. Add 1 cup water little by little, mixing continuously till a lump free batter is formed. Add 2 cups of water little at a time, mixing continuously till a smooth batter of dropping consistency is formed.
3. To make the sugar syrup, heat sugar and 1 cup water in a deep non-stick pan, and cook till the sugar dissolves.
4. Add milk and discard the scum occasionally. Add saffron and green cardamom powder and mix well. Cook till the syrup reaches one string consistency.
5. Heat sufficient ghee in 2 deep non-stick pans. Place a ring mould in the centre of one pan and let the other pan be on low heat.
6. Drop batter in a thin stream in the centre, fry for a few seconds and start dropping the batter again in the same way. Using a skewer, make a hole in the centre and repeat the same process for 3-4 more times, making a hole in the centre after every addition.
7. Occasionally add ghee on top of the ghevar from the other pan. Drain on a cooling rack.
8. Drizzle the prepared sugar syrup on top. Spread rabdi on top. Sprinkle slivered pistachios and dried rose petals. Sprinkle slivered almonds on top and garnish with silver warq.
