Rava Kesari

>> Tuesday, March 9, 2010

Kesari is traditionally offered as neivedyam when we perform puja/vratam at home. I started my cooking experiments with this sweet when I was in high school. Yes it is very easy and quick to make, all you need rava, water, ghee and sugar. Who are new to cooking can prepare this with ease. Here is the procedure.

1/2 cup bombay rava/sooji (Upma rava)
1 tbsp ghee
1/2 cup to 1 cup sugar (depends on how sweet you want)
11/2 cups water
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
6 or 7 cashew nuts and raisins each, chop fine

Heat ghee in a vessel, fry cashew nuts and raisins till golden brown, remove from ghee.
In the same vessel roast the rava on slow flame till nice aroma comes, taking care not to burn.
Meanwhile in another vessel boil water. When the rava roasted finely, add sugar to the boiling water, stir to dissolve completely.
Add the water to the rava stirring continuously to prevent lumps. Cover and cook on slow flame  for 5 minutes. Stir in cardamom powder and cook. When it comes to thick mass on stirring, switch off the stove and decorate with fried cashew and raisins.
