original Karah Prashad

Recommended Posts

Guest Haridas

Hi,

this is not to rake up any controversy, just out of general interest.  I was wondering about the original recipe of Karah Prashad.

To my knowledge, the western Gurdwaras today use: wheat, butter, brown sugar.  these are convenient, though processed foods.  They are also modern variants.  So what were the ingredients used in Guru ji's times?

For example, it must have been whole wheat.  And ghee I presume?  And Gurr (indian red sugar)?  Also, I presume it was cooked in an iron pot?

Can any history buffs help with this?

today we still use wholemeal wheat flour , ghee , water and sugar then was gurr now is white sugar(as most places have white sugar) . Degh is always made in sarabloh karai

some people think they know better and try to use suji /semolina but that is not traditional.

JKV thank you so much for your response.  It is really helpful.

From what I have seen in UK, here usually butter is used, and stainless steel pan.

Thats what hindu brothers make on SatyaNarayan pooja, and add milk too, maybe because vishnu ji sits on milk sea.

Its really tasty though. Ironically, they say kadah prasad is tastier lol

yeah well we're not trying to make sooji halva really ...

I love that Mughal quote about how SInghs lives are centered around degh in sukh and dukh. Sukhrana is a big big thing in our people

      Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa
      Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh,

      Dear Friends

      As my small effort to preserve history, I am looking for Puraatan (old) GuruGranth Sahib Ji. If anyone knows any place or person who has has a historical Guruji in possession and is willing to part ways, please respond. Bheta (compensation) will be provided in any way requested.

      Thanks
    • I'd like to see a original source to support your argument? 
    • You're very welcome! And I won't let it detract from the seriousness. As you were.

      You have a point, however, the newcomers or youngsters should be inspired by the lesson that when an enemy defames or takes sikhi into the dark ages, through extremism and factually incorrect propaganda, it is your duty to fight with facts and intelligence, don't be afraid of agression, and don't be brainwashed by bukwaas. Whether that enemy comes dressed as a gora, musla or even with a turban, recognise them through their bukwaas and don't be afraid. When faced with agression it is righteous to use the same. Do not lose the argument from intellectual inferiority or intimidation. Wjkk wjkf
