Rava Kesari Recipe

Rava Kesari/ Semolina Kesari

rava KesariI am very happy that this is my 100th post. My heartfelt thanks to all visitors, readers, fellow bloggers, friends for the encouragement, compliments and love you all have showered so far. I appreciate each and ever comment and feedback I have received. Thank you very much. Without your love and support, padhukitchen would not have come so far. So I decided to celebrate this occasion with a simple sweet dish and choose Rava Kesari.
This is a quick fix especially if you have unexpected guest. Now to the recipe

Ingredients needed

Semolina/Ravai – 1 cup

Ghee – 1 cup

Sugar – 2 cups

Water – 3 cups

Cashew nuts – 10

Raisins -10

Cardamom -3-4 powdered

Kesari Powder –a pinch

Method

Dry roast rava for a few seconds till it gets slightly heated. (Do not roast more than that)

Heat a little ghee, fry cashew nuts, raisins and keep it aside.

Add the remaining ghee, add rava and fry for a few minutes.

Add 3 cups of boiling water to the rava and a pinch of kesari powder. Simmer and cook.

After rava gets cooked, add sugar and mix well till it dissolves. Add cardamom powder.

Garnish it with cashew nuts, raisins and serve.

Meet you all again with a wonderful post, till then it is bye from padhu of padhuskitchen.
