Khirapat

Khirapat is a Prasad – an offering – made especially during the Ganeshotsav festival. It is made using easily available ingredients and tastes superb. I remember waiting eagerly for the ‘Aarti’ to finish during childhood just because we used to get to eat Khirapat.

Khirapat

A sweet Prasad – offering – for Ganpati Bappa.

  • 1 Cup Grated dry coconut
  • 4 Tsp Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Poppy Seeds
  • 1 Tsp Cardamom Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Cashew nuts & Raisins
  1. Lightly dry roast the grated Coconut and Poppy seeds and set aside to cool.
  2. When the roasted grated coconut and poppy seeds cool down, mix all the ingredients together in a big bowl.
  3. Khirapat is ready.

Khirapat can be made three to four days in advance and stored up to fifteen days in an air-tight container. It does not spoil as we have used all dry ingredients.
