Q: There is something very sweet provided in the Gurdwara Sahib to eat, what is it?
A: The sweet pudding is called Karah-parshad. In India, particularly when somebody comes to ones house, the host offers something sweet to the guests. In the times of the Sikh Gurus, there was a tradition that all those who came to meet with them were given Karah-parshad to eat. This practice is still followed. The sweet is seen as a blessing of God and consumed as such.Related Information
