Ingredients for 6-7 Medium size Ghevar
- 125 gms Maida
- Ice water
- 2 teaspoon desi ghee
- Cold water about 400- 450 ml
- 1 spoon besan
- Oil/desi ghee to fry
How to prepare ghevar and sugar syrup
First make the sugar syrup. To make the sugar syrup add sugar to a pan on medium heat.
Now add water and mix till sugar dissolves.
After 4-5 minutes the syrup will develop a one string consistency which means that if you put a drop of the syrup between your thumb and index finger and move the fingers apart, you will notice the syrup forming one string/thread Set aside while you make the ghevar
Now make the ghevar batter. we prepare it in mixi jar. To a bowl add ghee. Now add 2 tablespoon of ghee and 1 tablespoon of ice cold water to it.
Start mixing it in a mixer.
Once it’s all nice and combined, add 1/4 cup of flour and some cold water then mix to combine.
repeat this step again and again till all maida goes into it .
after this process add besan and some more cold water and again mix it,
churn it into intervals wait for 30 seconds then again churn it.
keep it in refrigerator for 20 -30 minutes till its cool.
Now heat ghee/oil in a deep pan on high heat. I used a combination of oil and ghee.
Fill your batter in ketchup bottle
Once the ghee is super hot, pour batter from a height of at least 6-7 inches. Pour batter, little by little in a constant flow into center of the pan. The batter will sizzle up and spread immediately. Wait for a seconds or to settle down sizzing of oil and then pour another ladle full from top in the center of the pan. Wait few seconds and then using a chopstick or any other elongated utensil, remove some batter from the center.
Pour 2 more ladles of batter, repeating the same steps again. You may add more batter if you want a thicker ghevar. Once you are done with all the layers, take a stick and press ghevar slightly inside the oil so that the top gets evenly cooked.
