Karah Prashad Recipe | How to make karah prashad | Atta halwa

What is Karah Prashad?

Karah Prashad is a halwa made using whole wheat flour, lots of ghee and sugar. Karah Prashad is given to the visitors at Gurudwaras. 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.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Karah Prashad Recipe

I have used regular whole wheat flour. However coarse wheat flour will give better results. No other flavors are added in it nor are any nuts added. This recipe gives the consistency of the karah prashad. However, if 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 cup.
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.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
