Kada Parshad is a sweet that is given in my place of worship, Gurudwara and is incredibly tasty. It is also called Atta Halwa and is made with just four ingredients – flour, sugar, ghee and water. I remember always asking for more as a child and still do to this day. I consider it a blessing.

What you will need

  • 1.25 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups water

How to make

  1. In a pan, add sugar and water. Heat until sugar dissolves to make a sugar syrup. Keep aside.
  2. In a wok or pan, heat ghee on low flame. Add flour and roast until a nutty aroma develops.
  3. Add sugar syrup to roasted flour slowly and stir continuously to prevent lumps from forming. Be careful while adding the sugar syrup to the flour as it bubbles vigorously initially.
  4. Stir continuously to prevent sticking or burning at the bottom of the pan.
  5. Kada Parshad is ready when the mixture no longer sticks to the pan and leaves the ghee.
  6. Serve hot.

Tips & Alternatives to try

  1. This can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Always heat before serving.
  2. The rule is 1:1:1:2 proportion of flour:ghee:sugar:water. But sometimes, more water is needed depending on the type/brand of wheat flour used. Adjust the water proportion accordingly.
  3. I add little less ghee than flour but equal amounts can be added for better taste.
