Ghevar Recipe
Ghevar is a Rajasthani delicacy especially prepared during the festivals of Teej & Rakhi.

Ghevar Recipe
• 4 Cups flour
• 2 Cups ghee
• 4 Cups water
• 1 Cup milk
• 1 tbsp Almonds (chopped)
• 1 tbsp Pistachios (chopped)
• 1 tsp Cardamom powder

How to make Ghevar:
Mix flour, ghee, milk and 3 cups of water to make a batter.
Dissolve colour in the remaining water.
Mix the coloured water to batter.
Take an aluminium or steel cylindrical container.
Cylinder should have a height of at least 12", and a diameter of 5-6".
Fill half of the cylinder with ghee and heat.
Once the ghee is hot, pour a glass of batter in the centre of ghee.
Allow foam to settle.
Pour a glassful of batter in ghee again.
Once the foam gets settled again, place ghewar on mesh.
Prepare sugar syrup of one tar consistency.
Dip ghevar in syrup so as to remove the extra oil.
Keep it for cooling.
