Sara Papudi

Sara papudi is among the heavenly recipes (Mahaprasad) offered at Lord Jagannath Temple, Puri...
It is a melt in mouth type desert, prepared from thick creams...cream is known as sara in oriya, so the name is sara papudi...i had it long back during my childhood,but never forgot the today im sharing this yummy desert of my Lord with all of u..:-)


1 litre Milk
50 gm Ghee
100 gm thick milk
U can also use condensed milk of same amount as me..:-)
Sugar Cardamom powder


Place the milk in a heavy buttomed pan. Boil in low flame, add the thick milk.
Cook the milk until a thick layer of cream/malai/sara forms on top.
Skim of the cream and continue the process till no more cream is formed.
Now the consistency of milk is thicker.
Cook it further by stirring continuously in low flame until it'll become thick solid in texure.
Switch off the flame and take out the khoa to come to room temperature.
Allow the cream to cool and mix it properly with the khoa.
Then heat little ghee in a pan.
Pour 1 tbsp of the cream mixture to the non stick pan and spread it using wet fingers.
When it is slightly browned, remove it and keep aside.
As these sara papudi are so soft, u must have to take extra care while removing it from the pan.
Sprinkle the sugar cardamom powder over it and keep aside.
Repeat the process till the mixture is over.

Serve hot...U can hav it chilled, but it tastes yumm while hot...soo try it and enjoy..:-)

Traditionally they take out the cream and place layer by layer in the leaf plates or khali(shala Patra plate), wait for it to cool down then cut it in to pieces fry in ghee, sprinkle powder of khanda(a type of sugar derived from sugarcane) and serve to Lord Jagannath. 🙏

They make it in large quantities, so that they can get good amount of thick cream (sara), I didn't use large amount, so added khoa and twisted the recipe a bit for easier use, hope you all will try and enjoy the recipe.❤️
