Ghewar is a traditional dessert of Rajasthan. It is specially made for the festival of Gangaur and Teej. Ghewar Mithai is a disc-shaped dessert made with all-purpose flour/ maida and soaked in sugar syrup. It’s just like a crispy honeycomb & is one unique pudding recipe.
I have used unsweetened Ghewar, a layer of custard, fruits, and whipped cream with a topping of mango and pistachios. It is an easy pudding recipe with wonderful taste to offer to your guest and family.
