Ghewar 2 pc
Ghevar is a Rajasthani cuisine sweet traditionally associated with the Teej Festival. Besides Rajasthan in India, it is also famous in Haryana, Delhi, Gujarat, western Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh
Ghewar is a disc-shaped sweet cake made with maida (refined wheat flour) and soaked in sugar syrup. There are many varieties of Ghevar, including plain, mawa and malai ghevar. It is generally prepared in July–August for the Teej or Rakshabandhan festival.
As per ayurveda, the months of Shravan and Bhadrapada i.e. July-August-September are predominated with Vata and Pitta respectively. This causes dryness and acidity in the whole body, resulting in restlessness and mood swings.
The highly sweet and ghee laden Ghevar and Firni provide relief from the acidic and moist environment. They have Vata and Pitta calming properties due to ghee and sweet juice. Thus, they have a calming effect on mind as well as the body.
