Chuda Ghasa Parfait

4.80 from 4 votes

Chuda Ghasa is a traditional preparation from Odisha. A coarse mix of beaten rice with sugar, ghee and freshly grated coconut, it is prepared during festivals. Some people also add chopped fruits and boondi to it to enhance the taste. With this recipe, I have attempted to deconstruct it and serve it in the form of separate layers just like a parfait. But a much healthier and simpler one.

Servings 3


  • 1 1/2 cup beaten rice
  • 4 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp ghee
  • 2 tsp freshly grated coconut
  • 3 tbsp chopped berries I had only dried ones
  • 2 tbsp chopped orange
  • 1/2 cup hung curd greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp chopped pistachios
  • 1/4 cup sweetened boondi or 1 motichoor laddoo
  • 1-2 green cardamoms
  • a pinch of cardamon
  • a pinch of saffron


  • Take the beaten rice, 2 tbsp sugar and cardamom in a mixer. Give a buzz to get a coarse mix.
  • Add the ghee and freshly grated coconut to the mixer jar and give another buzz. This is the regular chuda ghasa which looks like breadcrumbs.
  • Mix the hung curd with 2 tbsp sugar, a pinch of saffron and pistachios.
  • Mix the boondi/crumbled motichoor laddoo with the 2 tsp chuda ghasa.
  • Take two small glasses . Spread a thick layer of the chuda ghasa on the bottom. Top it with the oranges and chopped berries.
  • Top it with the hung curd .
  • Finally add a layer on boondi mix and garnish it with toasted pistachios.
  • Chill it in the fridge for 1-2 hours before serving.
