Kuler - Bajri ( millet ) flour barfi ( fudge )

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

As per Hindu calender as the month of Shravna commences so does many many other festivals follow at the same time. This month is spread out with innumerably religious festivals and ceremonies and almost all the days of this month are auspicious.

During this month people practice many rules and regulations while praying and also fast. Shravan has a special importance as it ushers in a host of auspicious days and festivals.



According to the scriptures, Naag Panchami is celebrated on Panchami Tithi of Shukla Paksha in Shravan Maas. But in Gujarat we celebrate Naag Panchami on Tithi of Krishna Paksha ( which is today ) in Shravana Maas. On this day we worship and offer Kuler for prasadam to Snake God. I have no idea why this specific dish is offered to god, but anyway I was taught this custom by my mum so I follow it very happily. My mum used to prepare Kuler early in the morning with just three ingredients, so simple and easy to make but can stand out with any Indian sweet. I used to eagerly wait for this and now my kids follow me too :-) So let's see the recipe.

You will need:-
  • 1 cup bajri flour ( millet )
  • 1/2 cup Jeggery grated
  • 1/4 cup ghee
Method:-
Mix everything in one bowl . Give it a good rub, you can see the mixture will become in one mass.
If you feel mixture is dry, add one tsp ghee. Make ping pong size balls.
Offer to god and have it as prasadam.
You can store this in air tight container for 2-3 days.
Enjoy.

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
