Kada Parshad

Kada Parshad

Kada Parshad, also known as Karah Parshad or Prashad, is a sweet and sacred offering in Sikhism. It is commonly served in Gurdwaras (Sikh temples) and distributed among devotees. Kada Parshad is made with equal portions of wheat flour, ghee (clarified butter), sugar, and water. Here's a recipe to make Kada Parshad:


  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1 cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups water


  1. Heat ghee in a thick-bottomed pan or kadhai over medium heat.
  2. Add the wheat flour to the hot ghee and mix well. Continuously stir the mixture to prevent lumps and ensure even browning.
  3. Cook the wheat flour in ghee until it turns golden brown and releases a nutty aroma. This process is known as "roasting" and is an essential step in making Kada Parshad. It may take around 10-15 minutes.
  4. In a separate pan, bring water to a boil.
  5. Slowly add the boiling water to the roasted wheat flour mixture, stirring continuously to avoid lumps.
  6. Cook the mixture over low heat until it thickens and forms a smooth consistency. It should have a pudding-like texture.
  7. Add sugar to the mixture and continue cooking, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves completely. The mixture will thicken further.
  8. Cook the mixture for a few more minutes until it starts to leave the sides of the pan and becomes a cohesive mass.
  9. Remove the Kada Parshad from the heat and transfer it to a serving bowl or plate.
  10. Allow the Kada Parshad to cool slightly before serving. It can be served warm or at room temperature.
  11. Serve Kada Parshad as a sacred offering or prasad in Sikh temples or enjoy it as a sweet treat at home.

Kada Parshad holds religious significance in Sikhism, and it is recommended to prepare it with utmost devotion and respect. It is customary to offer it with folded hands and receive it with reverence.
