Preparation Steps for Ghewar Recipe (Ghevar Recipe)
  1. Take the ghee and cold milk in a big bowl and blend together vigorously. Now add the wheat flour and blend properly;
  2. Now add 1.5 cups of water and mix well to make a batter. The batter must be smooth and uniform consistency.
  3. In the remaining water, dissolve yellow food color; add this colored water to the batter and mix well.
  4. Heat around 1 kg of ghee in an aluminum or steel cylindrical container over high heat. The cylindrical pot should have a height of at least 12", and a diameter of 5-6". The pot should be filled almost half of the ghee. You can use smaller pot if you want to make smaller size ghewars.
  5. When the ghee is smoky hot, pour a glass of batter in the centre of ghee. This will raise the foam over the ghee. Wait for 1 minute until the foam is settled.
  6. When the foam is settled, pour one more glass of batter in ghee again. Its up to you how big you want to make your ghewar. The batter is always poured in the center of the pot. As when you pour the batter into the center of pot, it spreads around the corner and lift up in the ghee.
  7. With a skewer, pierce the ghewar at some places; let the ghevar fry for around 2 minutes till the ghewar is light pink in color.
  8. When the ghewar is light pink in color, OFF the flame and take ghevar out of the ghee very gently with the help of skewers. Place the ghewar on a mesh (net) to drain the excess ghee.
  9. PREPARE SUGAR SYRUP: - Take the ¾ cup of sugar in pot along with 1.5 cup of water and let it come to boil over high heat. When boiling, reduce the heat to medium flame and it boil for 5-6 minutes. Take ½ tsp of syrup in a bowl and let it cool. When the ½ tsp of syrup is cool, check the consistency of syrup. There syrup should be of 1 string consistency. When the sugar syrup is of 1 string consistency, take it out of the flame.
  10. Dip ghewar in sugar syrup. Put the ghevar again on the mesh to drain the excess amount o syrup. Let the ghewar dry for one hour.
  11. PREPARE MILK RABRI: – Take 1 liter of full cream milk in heavy bottom pot and let it boil over medium heat until it remains 1/3 of its original quantity. You can add 1-2 tsp of sugar to make it sweet. Your rabri is ready. Let it cool. Alternatively, see the rabri recipe at
  12. When the rabri is cold, top the ghewar with this rabri and pour few drops of saffron milk over the ghewar.
  13. Sprinkle the chopped almonds, pistachios and cardamom powder. Your delicious ghewar is ready, keep in refrigerator and serve hot.
  14. IMPORTANT: the ghewar without rabri topping can be stored in fridge upto two weeks. But the ghewar with rabri toping can only be stored for 2-3 days. Because the rabri can not be stored more than 2-3 days. So if you want to store the ghewar for a long time, do not top it all with rabri. But take only the needed amount ghewar for 1-2 serving and top it with rabri as when required.
