Rava Kesari


Serving 2 persons

1.Upma Rava - 1 cup

2.Water - 2 cups

3.Sugar - 3/4 cup

4.Ghee - between 1/4 and 1/2 cup

5.Food color (Red/Orange/Yellow) - a pinch

6.Cardamon Powder- 1/2 spoon

5.Raisins and cashew few


1.Place a thick kadai on flame,pour a spoon of ghee,fry raisins and cashew nuts till golden.

2.Keep them aside.Now fry rava in the same kadai dryly, till the raw smell goes off.Again keep this in separate plate and let it cool down.

3.Place the kadai on flame,add 2 cups of water and allow this to boil.Now add the roasted rava to that slowly.

4.Let this boil for 5 to 7 minutes till the rava gets completely cooked(keep on stirring the mix,otherwise lumps may be formed).Now add sugar to this and mix well.

5.Dissolve a pinch of food color in a spoon of water,now add the color liquid to the rava mixture.Stir well.

6.Add ghee side by side.Keep on mixing the kesari.Atlast add roasted raisins & cashews and cardomon powder.

7.Mix well.The kesari should not stick to the kadai,it should come out like a ball,that is the right consistency.

Note:If u didn't get that consistency,then the ghee u've added is not sufficient,hence add adequate ghee and mix nicely.

8.Now the kesari is ready to serve.This is the most easiest sweet to make, also can be made in few minutes.
