What is Ghevar?

Does Ghevar sound something completely new? Don’t worry, I am here to help you.

The Month of August is the festive month in India. This is also known as the auspicious month of ‘Shravana aka Sawan’. This is a month which has the festivals like Teej and Raksha Bandhan.

Coming Monday India would be celebrating the festival of Raksha Bandhan, aka Rakhi. This is a Hindu festival that celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters. Rakhi itself is the name of a sacred thread of protection adorn with the love and affection of a sister for her brother. If you want to learn more about this festival, here is the link to Wikipedia for Raksha Bandhan.

Coming to Ghevar, Ghevar is a disc-shaped sweet dish made using special thick metal molds. The texture of this dessert looks like a honeycomb. This Rajasthani specialty of Malai Ghevar is also perfect for Rakshabandhan. So this time I made this ‘Malai Ghevar’ to please my brother and to celebrate this festival of Rakhi at my home. Plus I have also shared the video recipe with him, just in case if he wants to make his sister’s version of this ‘Ghevar’ at his home. Alright, so now he knows how to make it perfectly. 😉

Many of you know that I trace my roots to Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan. And these Ghevars are traditional Rajasthani delicacies. Ghevars are missing me, or may be I am missing these ghervas. I have an innumerable number of enamored memories correlated with this dessert.

In Jaipur, there is one dedicated street of sweet shops where they make fresh ‘Ghevars’. These cooks are known as ‘Halwai’ in Hindi. They make everything in front of your eyes, but they certainly have their own secrets which are hard to figure out. Moreover making Ghevar at home is also so overwhelming even for localites. It’s because these traditional shops use special kinds of metal molds for making this disc shaped Ghevars.

It’s been a tradition in my family that my maternal uncles used to gift these Ghevars on ‘Teej’ and ‘Gangaur’ to their sisters. Once you soak these discs in sugar syrup they get soggy so fast. So my Granny and Mommy always preferred the unsweetened discs. They used to make their own sugar syrup to sweeten these discs. And served them warm as soon as they got sweetened. The last fun part was the ‘Rabri’ topping. Rabri is a sweet dish made by thickened milk and nuts.

How is Ghevar served?

Ghevar as such is served in three ways.

  1. Plain Ghevar: In this version, sugar syrup is poured over the Ghevar discs.
  2. Malai Ghevar: Here, sugar syrup is poured over the Ghevar discs first. Then they are topped with warm rabri and garnished with nuts.
  3. Mawa Ghevar: In this version, sugar syrup is poured over the Ghevar discs first. After that, they are topped with sweetened mawa (dried milk) and nuts.

Ghevar always looks mesmerizing, but making this dessert is not that complex as it looks. The wonderful news is that you can easily make this at home in any pan. You don’t need those bulky pans or molds to make these. Make these at home to please your loved ones.

What are the things to consider while making these?

You just need the right consistency of the batter and the right amount of heat to make these perfectly crispy discs. I would not say that it’s an effortless task, but I can guarantee you that it’s not that difficult either. A little practice, some patience, and some meticulousness is all you need, and you will be able to nail it.

As a footnote, I am telling you that this is a decadent dessert, you can’t eat too much due to fried richness and sweetness from sugar syrup and ‘Rabri’. So the recommended way to eat this is to eat a little at a time. I guarantee you that every single bite of this lip-smacking dessert is a joyride to a wonderland.
