Kansaar

Kansaar

Every Birthday in the family is celebrated with an offering to the God. I made kansaar for husband’s Birthday yesterday. This broken wheat sweet aka Kansaar is made with finer broken/cracked wheat and jaggery. like all prasaads, one cannot taste this before offering. This recipe if from Baa and mami all the way from Vadodara. The main difference between Kansaar and Laapsi [The rajasthani cousin] is the size of broken wheat. In Kansaar a finer kind is used and laapsi uses a bigger one. Also the wheat is roasted in ghee for laapsi while in kansaar we only coat it…
