How To make Ghewar? | Instant Ghewar Recipe

Ghewar is a traditional Rajasthani sweet dish that holds a special place in the hearts of dessert lovers. This delectable treat is made from a batter of all-purpose flour and ghee, which is deep-fried and then soaked in a sugar syrup. Ghewar is often prepared during festive occasions like Teej, Gangaur, and Raksha Bandhan in Rajasthan. Its unique texture, crispy edges, and intricate honeycomb-like design make it a visually appealing dessert that is enjoyed by people of all ages. In this article, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of preparing Ghewar at home.

Here is a breakfast recipe that is easy to prepare and delicious to eat.


For the batter:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/2 cup chilled milk
  • A pinch of saffron strands (optional)
  • Ice cubes (for chilling the batter)

For the sugar syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • A few strands of saffron
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder

For garnishing:

  • Chopped pistachios and almonds
  • Edible silver foil (varak)


Prepare the batter:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and ghee. Mix them well until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Dissolve the saffron strands in chilled milk and add it to the flour-ghee mixture. Mix until you obtain a smooth batter.
  • Add some ice cubes to the batter and continue mixing. The ice cubes will help in giving the Ghewar its unique texture.
  • Let the batter rest for 30 minutes to an hour. During this time, the ghee will solidify and the batter will become thicker.

Prepare the sugar syrup:

  • In a saucepan, combine sugar and water. Place it over medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves completely.
  • Add saffron strands and cardamom powder to the sugar syrup. Allow it to simmer for 5-7 minutes until the syrup thickens slightly.
  • Remove the syrup from heat and keep it warm.

Fry the Ghewar:

  • Heat a wide, heavy-bottomed pan with a generous amount of ghee for deep frying. Ensure the ghee is not smoking hot but moderately hot.
  • Take a ladleful of batter and pour it slowly into the hot ghee, starting from the center and moving outward in a circular motion.
  • Allow the Ghewar to cook undisturbed for a few minutes until the edges turn golden brown.
  • Gently flip the Ghewar using a long skewer or a fork to cook the other side. Fry until it turns crisp and golden.
  • Remove the Ghewar from the ghee and drain excess oil by placing it on a wire rack or absorbent paper.

Soak and garnish:

  • Immerse the fried Ghewar into the warm sugar syrup, making sure it is fully submerged. Let it soak for 2-3 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the Ghewar from the syrup and place it on a serving plate.
  • Garnish the Ghewar with chopped pistachios, almonds, and a touch of edible silver foil (varak) for an authentic look.

Serving and storage:

  • Serve the Ghewar warm or at room temperature. It pairs well with a scoop of rabri (thickened sweetened milk) or simply as it is.
  • Ghewar stays fresh for a couple of days if stored in an airtight container at room temperature.


Preparing Ghewar at home might seem daunting, but with the right ingredients and technique, you can create a delicious and visually stunning sweet treat.
