Gur k meethey chawal is the dessert made of gur, that is jaggery, and chawal, that is rice. In other words we can say that this dish consists of sweet rice made with jaggery. This dessert is popular dish from Uttar Pradesh, India. Gur ke Meethey Chawal is my all-time favourite dessert or you can say it’s my childhood delight. I love to have this with warm milk and sometimes malai over it :D. This recipe is my mom’s and I’m passing on it to you.
While cooking Gur ke meethey chawal, I went to the flashback where my mom used to make this dessert with so much love and we would gobble our bowl’s gur ke meethe chawal just to take our siblings’.
This dessert is golden brown in colour with main ingredient being jaggery or gur. We can add other flavours like pure ghee, cloves and dry fruits to make it more delicious. You can have it, as it is or just have it with slight warm milk. It will give an amazing taste and in return your tummy will be full with a healthy dessert! I would rather keep calling it a healthy dessert because of Jaggery in the dish. Jaggery or gur has its own health benefits as it makes our digestive system strong.
It is also known as Meetha Bhat.
Not much ingredients are there in Gur ke meethey chawal but the process of cooking takes time, i.e., one hour 30 minutes or sometimes less.
