Kansar is a sweet dish from Gujarat (Western India) traditionally prepared as a good omen during auspicious occasions, festivities or before setting on to a new journey. Following this ancient ritual of our culture, I will begin my blog by cooking Kansar.
Cracked wheat is the main ingredient of Kansar but if it is not available in your region, it can be easily replaced by bulger wheat. In fact, bulger wheat being parboiled, it cooks very easily. Bulger wheat is a good source of fibers, required for good digestion. The other components of the recepie include milk, clarified butter and sugar, basic ingredients usually available in any kitchen.
