If you love the kadha prasad served in gurudwaras, then you’ve come to the right place. The soft velvety halwa is believed to be as food blessed by the Guru. Rich in sugar and ghee, kadha prasad is immensely delicious and is undoubtedly difficult to resist on just one serving. The prasad is served out of the same bowl to everyone in equal proportions. As a sign of humility and respect, visitors accept the kadha prasad sitting, with hands raised and cupped. The prasad served in gurudwaras touches the soul as it is prepared with utmost dedication and devotion. Here is a recipe of kadha prasad by Chef Reetu Uday Kugaji that you can prepare in the comforts of your kitchen. Read on to know more about it steps and ingredients.
1. Whole wheat flour, coarse texture (mota atta/Punjabi mota atta): 01 cup
2. Clarified butter (desi ghee): 01 cup
3. Sugar: 01 cup or more/less as desired
4. Water (hot): 03 cups
Heat the ghee in a heavy-bottomed non-stick kadhai. Add the whole wheat flour and cook, stir it continuously till its colour changes and you get the aroma of roasted whole wheat flour. Keep on stirring to ensure even browning. The atta or whole wheat flour should turn golden and give a good fragrance.
Once the ghee oozes out, add sugar. Stir again till sugar dissolves. Do not caramelise or the halwa will give a burnt flavor. Add hot water. Stir very carefully, as the mixture has the tendency to splutter.
Continue to stir so that no lumps are formed. The halwa will absorb water and continue to thicken quickly. Keep on stirring and once it’s semi-thick, switch off the flame. Serve it hot or warm.
