Trini Parsad II (Flour Parsad)

Last year I posted parsad made with cream of wheat. This time I decided to post the other popular variation of parsad – flour parsad. I thought I was a cream of wheat parsad convert until I saw how fast and easy flour parsad was to make. And you still get that wonderful smooth sweetness parsad is known for.

A Choice of Parsad

So now I have a choice of which one I want to make, but it is going to be a difficult choice.  Or… you know what? I think I will just have to make both when I’m ready: it’s too hard to resist either parsad.

Now, during Divali, I normally get little bags contains the several Divali sweets, including parsad.  Most times that little bag of parsad never get to reach home, and far less the fridge, because I would be nibbling on that parsad while on my way home too right after the barfi :-D.

Trini Parsad

By the way you ever had day old parsad, cold from the fridge? Man! it is the best way I know of, to really enjoy parsad. Somehow the coldness does something to bring out that milky sweetness of the parsad. Anyway, I’ll be short since I have more to post before Divali celebrations really get on the way today. Here’s flour parsad. Enjoy!

Oh! Don’t be daunted by the amount of pictures: the steps are simple. I just wanted to show a little more detail, so that you will get a vivid picture of what to do. :-)

Flour Parsad


1 tin evaporated milk 410g
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp elychee ( cardamom)
1 cup raisins
1 tbsp. grated ginger
1/2 lb unsalted butter or ghee
2 cups flour

bring to a boil the milk, sugar, elychee and ginger
set aside

In another pot melt the butter or ghee

Add raisins

after about 2 minutes, add flour and stir continuously

Stir until the mixture achieves a golden brown colour
Note: You will also notice that the raisins have become plump. A good indication that it is ready for the milk.

Pour in the milk and continue stirring …

until it leaves the sides of the pot and looks fluffy in appearance.

See how easy that was? Ok! Next recipe coming soon. Ah gone!

    Does this recipe need any water added like you did with the cream of wheat recipe?

    • Felix November 10, 2012 at 11:02 pm #

      No, this is a different recipe and technique.

    Hi. Tried the Parsad today. After many ‘failures’ this was absolutely the best. I used less sugar though. But I got the fluffy texture that eluded me for quite a while. Thanks.

    Allo Felix, one of my strange questions again: The elychee you refer to – is it whole elychee pods (slightly crushed), whole elychee seeds or ground elychee? Thanking you kindly.

    • Felix August 16, 2013 at 10:13 am #

      Hi DC, I used ground elychee. Don’t mind the questions;keep asking.

    I’ve been craving parsad for some months now and last night I found your recipe!
    I added a tbsp more ginger (for which my son complained) and I swapped out 1/2 cup flour for cream of wheat.

    omg!!! I loves it!!!

  19. Abby October 4, 2014 at 8:54 pm #

    Hi Felix, do you have to patch the flour before adding it to the ghee?

    • Felix October 20, 2014 at 9:20 pm #

      Some people do but it’s all up to you.
