Wheat Halwa- Kada Prasad is a rich and delicious dessert (prasad) prepared with wheat flour, sugar and ghee. A quick, easy and under 30 minute recipe!!
Do I really need to say anything about this recipe? Wheat Halwa- Kada Prasad is a flour based prasad that is served at all Gurudwaras around the globe. On a Sunday morning, Gurudwara’s (a worship place for Shikhs or Guru ka darbar), are filled with a sweet smell of Kadah prasad and this halwa is offered to every one who visits the place.
This place is so divine and peaceful that you forget everything for a moment. Early in the morning, the Bhai-ji at our Gurudwara prepare kadah prasad by stirring it continuously and singing hymns in praise of Waheguru (the supreme lord).
After the Ardas (prayer ceremony), prasad is distributed by sevadars (voluntary service) and all the people (sangat) advance towards Langar (simple food offered by Guru’s kitchen).
No matter how close we try to come in preparing this halwa but the one distributed at gurudwara is so divine and has it’s own rich taste.
RECIPE DETAILS – This is the most simple and easy halwa recipe. Follow few tricks to a smooth and creamy textured halwa-
- Ghee is a must for this recipe. If atta feels dry, feel free to add some more ghee during the browning process.
- Before adding sugar make sure the flour is light brown in color.
- Do not pour all the sugar water at once. Add water slowly to the cooked flour to avoid lump formation.
- Traditionally, gurudwara halwa is made ONLY with wheat flour. But at times, I have add 1 teaspoon sooji (semolina) to this recipe and it tastes great. Sooji adds a great texture and crunch to this halwa.
