Ghevar Choco Drip Cake with Whipped cream & chocolate ganache

Well Well …. who doesn’t love cakes and who doesn’t love traditional indian sweets. I, for one, love them both. So when a food contest came up, I decided to try something fusion. A ghevar is an Indian sweet and would seem poles apart in taste from a Gooey chocolate cake. But put them together and lo! you have a winner in less than 2 hours! While a ghevar would require some practice to perfect ( you can find the recipe here – https://thehappyfoods.com/2017/01/24/rajasthani-ghevar-with-rabdi/), but once done – turning it into a cake is a pretty simple task. Just follow the steps and you have a winner recipe to impress at a party!

Prep Time: 2 hours

Ingredients for making the cake:

  1. 3 finely cooked and cooled ghevars
  2. 3 cups heavy cream
  3. 4 tspns sugar
  4. 2 tspns cocoa powder (optional)
  5. Dark chocolate compound – 200 gms
  6. Chopped dryfruits
  7. 1 tspn butter (For glaze)

 

Method:

  1. Pour 2 cups of heavy cream in & sugar in a large bowl and whip it continuously in one direction until it becomes thick and soft peaks are formed. (Tip: Test the right consistency by taking a spoonful of the whipped cream and trying to drop it. A thick dollop should fall down). 
  2. Heat 1 cup heavy cream in a large vessel and bring it to a boil. Add the chocolate compound and keep stirring until it melts completely. The chocolate and cream should be thoroughly mixed to give a rich texture.
  3. Add the butter to the prepared chocolate ganache to give it a shine.
  4. Take out the refrigerated whipped cream.Take a ghevar and spread the whipped cream on it. Place another ghevar on it and repeat the process with all the 3 ghevars. Allow this 3 tiered ghevar cake with whipped cream to refrigerate for 30 mins.
