Ghevar sweet was originated in Rajasthan and is especially served during Rakshabandhan and Teej festivals. It is a disc-shaped sweet cake prepared with refined flour and soaked in sugar syrup. According to Ayurveda, ghevar consists of both vatta and pitta. Thus, it helps in calming the mind in the body. That’s why ghevar is prepared during the month of July-August-September because these months are predominated with vatta and pitta, and this causes acidity and dryness in the body. So, eating ghevar is beneficial for health.
