Jhajhariya

print   ·   T  T  

This is an Indian dessert made of corn, milk, ghee and sugar and is garnished with raisins and nuts.

Grated or coarsely ground fresh corn is slow-roasted in a dollop of ghee til it loses most of its moisture and assumes a dry granular form. The dish takes hours to cook and needs constant stirring and monitoring, but this pre-processing can be done once a year as the resulting material can be stored for months unrefrigerated.

Just before serving, the preparation is simmered for about five minutes on a medium flame before adding boiling water equal to that of the corn.

About three times that amount of boiling milk is a also added followed by further heating, and then adding about an equal volume of sugar and raisins. It is served hot but some like it after refrigerating it.

Google mentioned Jhajariya in an ad by Google that went viral on the Net.
