Guru Nanak Jayanti 2021: What is Kada Prasad? Here are some recipe videos to make holy food on Gurpurab

Guru Nanak Jayanti, also known as Gurpurab, is one of the most auspicious festivals for Sikhs since it commemorates the birth anniversary of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism. Gurpurab’s date varies from year to year. Today marks the 552nd birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

The sacred festival comes on Kartik Poornima, the fifteenth day of the Kartik month, according to the Hindu calendar. On this special day, the langar, a special community lunch, is served to all the devotees. This meal is strictly vegetarian and varies from Gurudwara to Gurudwara but the one thing that remains constant is the Kada Prasad.

Kada Prasad or Atta ka Halwa is a rich dessert prepared in Desi Ghee (clarified butter) and offered to all who visit & pray in a Gurudwara. It is made of whole wheat flour.

Kada Prasad is a holy food offered at Gurudwaras without any discrimination. It symbolises everyone is equal. It is distributed after Ardaas. Ardaas is a unique prayer in Sikhism.

Here’s how to make Kada Prasad?

Ingredients: Ghee, Atta, Sugar, Water in the ratio of 1:1:1:2


  1. First, boil four cups of water in a pan (depending upon the quantity you seek to make). Put one cup of ghee in a separate pan and melt it.
  2. Then add the coarse wheat and cook until it gets golden brown. Stir it constantly to avoid lumps. Keep a low flame.
  3. Put in some sugar and boiling water. But, don’t let the sugar burn.
  4. Continue to whisk until the water has been entirely absorbed. Once it is cooked, you will see ghee floating on the surface of the wheat halwa.
  5. Turn off the flame and your dish is ready. Serve hot.

When it is ready, first offer the prasad to the Guru and then serve the delicious Kada Prasad to the devotees.
