Kada Prashad Recipe

Kada Prashad takes me to my childhood and gurudwara visits. When I grew up I had this urge to have atta halwa and then I learned this recipe which is very simple with a ratio of 1:1:1:3 for ghee:atta:sugar: water

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup atta, wheat flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup ghee, clarified butter
  • 3 cup of water

making sugar solution

  • Take 1 cup of sugar in a saucepan or pot. add 3 cups water. Use a saucepan that has a handle as it helps to add sugar solution to the atta mixture in the later part of the recipe.
  • Keep the pan on the stovetop on a medium-low to medium flame.
  • Stir the solution so that all the sugar dissolves.
  • Heat this sugar solution until it begins boiling.
  • Once the sugar solution boils, then switch off the flame.

  • Add 1 cup ghee. let the entire ghee melt.
  • Then add whole wheat flour.
  • Stir and mix the whole wheat flour (atta) with the ghee.
  • Mix very well to get a mixture without lumps.
  • On a low flame begin to fry the whole wheat flour in ghee.
  • Fry the atta stirring non-stop.
  • The color of the flour will change as you keep on stirring and cooking it. Keep on stirring the flour to ensure even browning.
  • The atta or whole wheat flour should have a shade of dark golden color and should have a nutty fragrance.

  • When the atta turns to a dark golden color, add the sugar solution in two parts. Be very careful as the mixture bubbles and splutters a lot.
  • Mix and stir very well.
  • Then add the second part of the hot sugar solution. continue to mix very well.
  • Now cook the kada prashad stirring non-stop.
  • The mixture will thicken as it gets cooked.
  • The halwa will also start releasing ghee.
  • Continue to stir non-stop and cook till the whole mixture becomes one mass and leaves the sides of the pan.
  • The consistency of the kada prasad will also change as well as the color.
  • When the kada prashad has a thick pudding-like consistency, then switch off the flame.
