Guru Nanak Jayanti special “Karah Prashad” – Karah Parshad Recipe

Guru Nanak Jayanti special “Karah Prashad”

Cook till the ghee separatesPious is delicious.
It has never happened that I have had something at a religious place and it has not tasted divine. No one judges the taste of prashad ever… but its simplicity and divinity is something that is remembered by everyone.
I was searching the Karah Prashad Recipe on YouTube… exploring the difference between aata halwa and karah prashad. And this is what I found:-
Aata halwa + prayers=karah prashad
I saw that while making the karah prashad people also chanted some prayers. It was so divine to see that. Something that is being prepared in this manner… can it go in any way?! NEVER!


Now something about the recipe…
I have used regular whole wheat flour. However coarse wheat flour that will give better results. No other flavours are added in it nor are any nuts added. This recipe gives the consistency of the karah prashad. However it you like it thicker you can keep the water ratio to 2 instead of 3 as in for this particular recipe add 1 cup water instead of 1 and 1/2.
Please be patient… cook the flour on a low flame till it turns dark brown.

Cook with a pure heart and mind… chant prayers while cooking it. You will not only get the divine halwa but also some peace of mind.
