Kassar is an after prayer offering to devotees in mainly Northern parts of India. This is a sweet offering given in both Hindu temples and homes. Kassar is dry with various fruits added to it and is usually offered with charnamrit. It is mainly made on Purnima (full moon day).
Recipe of kassar
2 cups atta (whole wheat flour)
4 tblsp ghee (clarified butter)
3/4 cup boora (castor sugar or grinded sugar)
2-3 green cardamoms- powdered
1 tblsp desiccated coconut
1 tsp tulsi (basil) leaves
Mixed chopped fruits like apple, banana, orange segments
1. Heat ghee in a wok or a kadhai. Add wheat flour and turn the heat to medium- low. Roast it till it becomes golden brown and a distinct aroma start coming out of it much similar to baking. Turn off the heat.
2. Mix cardamom powder and allow the flour to cool. Add boora, coconut, tulsi leaves and fruits. Mix well and offer kassar along with charnamrit.
