Kurs (Sindhi Sweet - Diwali Special)

Ingredients to make Kurs (Sindhi Sweet - Diwali Special)

  • maida (Refined Flour): 500 gms
  • Dalda (Vanaspati, the hardened one): 500 ml
  • sugar: 750 gms, made into 1-thread consistency syrup in about 2 cups water

How to make Kurs (Sindhi Sweet - Diwali Special)

  1. Make the sugar syrup into 1 thread consistency and let it cool completely.
  2. Heat the vanaspati and add maida into it. Keep stirring briskly for about 20 minutes on sim (in between, increase flame for a few minutes twice), until the consistency becomes thin, and the aroma changes.
  3. The colour will also change from white to brownish-cream. (not brown)
  4. Keep stirring it. It becomes thinner & of flowing consistency.
  5. Now you remove it from fire to let it cool until it is luke warm.
  6. At this stage add the sugar syrup through a seive to the cooled maida (off the flame), then stir briskly until you can feel the pressure of the thickening of the maida paste. This has to be done off the flame.
  7. We mix it for a long long time until the mixture thickens & we can see it hardening.
  8. As soon as you can feel it becoming really thick, as shown in the photo, transfer onto a greased plate, and shake the plate hard on the platform to even it out. (Do not use ladle to smoothen it. This is to retain the gloss.)
  9. Let it set. Cut into cubes.

My Tip:

This sweet has no flavoring ingredients like cardamom or saffron added to it. Yet it has a unique flavour of its own.
