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.
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
- Lightly dry roast the grated Coconut and Poppy seeds and set aside to cool.
- When the roasted grated coconut and poppy seeds cool down, mix all the ingredients together in a big bowl.
- 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.
