About Ghewar topped with Shrikhand Recipe

I have set a challenge for myself. I follow a traditional cook book Ruchira by Kamalabai Ogale. My aim is to cook through all the Marathi traditional recipes from this bookJulia and Julie esque. This one holds a special place in my heart, it was a challenge set by Late Kamalabai Ogale's daughter Ushatai,when I had a chat with her in the month of April. I promised I will work towards it and come back to her once I succeed. 6 months later, I attempted making ghewar for Vijayadashmi and succeeded. I could not wait to inform Ushatai. I got a shocking news from her grand daughter Ruchira. Ushatai was no more. She left for heavenly abode on the 12th September 2015. I was late in conveying my success with ghewar. I would like to dedicate this post to Late Ushatai.

Ghewar topped with Shrikhand

Ingredients to make Ghewar topped with Shrikhand

  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp of ghee, heated
  • water as required
  • water for the sugar syrup 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 cup sugar for the syrup
  • ghee/oil to fry the ghewar
  • 1 packet Greek yogurt
  • 3-4 tablespoons Sour cream (optional for those who like sour taste)
  • Caster sugar 1/4 cup
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • Chopped nuts of your choice
  • saffron strands infused in warm milk

How to make Ghewar topped with Shrikhand

  1. To prepare the shrikhand, mix a small portion of yogurt with sugar and stir well. Fold this with the rest of the yogurt and mix it well.
  2. Fold in the sour cream if you are using it. To this add in the saffron infused milk and cardamom powder. Place it in the fridge to cool it further. Garnish it with nuts once the shrikhand is topped on the ghewar.
  3. To prepare the ghewar, take a bowl, mix in the flour and ghee, then rub it with your finger tips. Set this aside for some time.
  4. In a pan, mix enough water and the flour-ghee mixture to make a smooth batter. This is the main batter. Use a little at a time in a different vessel and adjust to a pouring consistency.
  5. In another vessel, heat ghee/oil. (I used a food ring to shape my ghewar frying.) Place this ring in hot ghee.
  6. With the help of a ladle pour the ghewar batter right in the middle of the ring. The batter will start bubbling in the hot ghee.
  7. With the help of a chopstick, move the batter to the sides of the food ring and let it cook. Top it with the batter again and move the batter to the side.
  8. Each time the batter is poured, it will form bubbles and create a net which cooks on the previous layer. Continue pouring the batter 4-5 times.
  9. Using the chopsticks, press the ghewar to check if it is cooked. If it hardens, then it is cooked.
  10. With a chopstick, demould the ghewar and drain onto a paper towel or place a chopstick through it to drain the extra ghee.
  11. Mix the sugar with water and dissolve the sugar. Bring this to boil till it forms a two thread consistency, then add saffron and cardamom powder into the syrup.
  12. Drizzle the syrup onto the ghewar to soak them.
  13. Top each ghewar with the prepared shrikhand and garnish it with chopped nuts of your choice.
