Karahow Prasad

 

 

 

This is a soft golden brown oil based Prasad made out of wheat flour, sugar and ghee that is offered to every visitor at the tikana (Guru’s darbar).Karahow Prasad is a sacred treat that must be prepared according to rituals like cleaning up the cooking area and cooking utensils. It is usually made while reciting the sacred scripture (we will just keep the name of our lord in our mind, and am sure it will be as delicious as it always is) and is covered with a white cloth after preparation. It is kept near the Guru Sahib and is served after the Guru Patth.It is served to everybody after you have said the sacred name satnam sahi. This Prasad is also prepared at home for satyanarayan fast, birthdays and other religious/special occasions. Karahow Prasad is not only made by the Sindhis, but also by Sikhs and Punjabis. The aroma of this tasty Prasad is just too…
