Ghevar: A savory dessert delight of Jaipur

“The belly rules the mind” goes a famous Spanish proverb, a tantalizing phrase that Jaipur, the land of the kings and rich cuisines, is no stranger to. Rajasthani platter is a scrumptious combination of sweet, spicy and colorful dishes. We Jaipurites with our salivating mouth proudly say that it is incomplete without the mention of Dal-Bati-Churma, a traditional wholesome meal of Rajasthan. Mind you, sweet dishes are never addressed as ‘dessert’ in our land, because unlike desserts which are had after the meal, we relish desserts before, during and after the meal.

Now is the perfect time to talk about the much-celebrated dessert in this season of special festivities. “Ghevar”,  an incredible Rajasthani Delicacy which is widely popular and traditionally associated with Teej Festival (locally called Sawan ki Teej or Hariyali Teej) and Raksha Bandhan festival falling in the month of August.

Ghevar is a round mesh-like disc-shaped fried delicacy drenched in cardamom and saffron flavoured sugar syrup and topped with sliced nuts and flavored rabri. We bet you are already dreaming to gobble Ghevar because this festival Dessert is always a chart-topper!

Sweet Ghevar SmallRabdi Ghevar Small
The luscious sweet is enjoyed indifferently as per an individual’s taste preferences; some enjoy it crispy while others love it tender with the toppings of Mawa or Malai.  Ghevar also tastes great when it is eaten with hot Milk or Kheer.

Having such a variety in taste, Ghevar can definitely satiate your sweet tooth pangs for the time being but cannot satisfy your need to have it again and again. “Padharo mahare des” is an apt phrase, which means: “Welcome to my land”, where you can experience the flavours of uniqueness that it has to offer and enhance it with the wonderful hospitality, food AND Sweet Dishes like Ghevar that Jaipur is famed the world over.
