Ghevar is a popular Rajasthani sweet which is made with pure desi ghee, milk and maida. Enjoyed mostly during the monsoon season, ghevar is one sweet dish which you must definitely try if you haven’t already.
Ghevar is traditionally made during Raksha Bandhan and also Teej, since the amount of moisture required for its preparation is ideal during this time period.
