Kesari Recipe

Kesari recipe
Rava Kesari or Kesari bhath is a common dessert from South India using Semolina.
You can use broken wheat for a healthier version.
Indian food has a tradition of 1000s of years of using clarified butter/Ghee with lots of different kinds of nuts.Our grandmas were so sure about the desserts they used to cook for the young children to make them really fit and strong;while they gobble the sweet without always knowing about the benefits they are getting though.
Ghee/clarified butter  has got many health benefits.We only need a dash of ghee for very flavorful Indian desserts,so we can consider its use as healthy.

After a good lunch/dinner,don't feel guilty to have some Kesari to satisfy your sweet tooth.
It contains all healthy ingredients.
Here'z the ingredients and the method of preparation.
Ingredients
Semolina-1 cup
Water-2 cups
Sugar-1/4 cup
Cardamom powder-1 tsp
Saffron-(Kesari color/orange color)
Crushed Cashew nuts-
Ghee-1 tbsp
Method
Boil 2 cups of water.Add saffron,cardamom powder and nuts to this.


Once the water starts boiling,simmer.

To this,add in 1 cup semolina.Mix really well without lumps.Now after a minute you can see the semolina has been cooked.Add in the sugar and the ghee.
Cook until dry,continuously stirring.
Well,that's it.
Now you can serve this in ramekins or you can spread this on a plate to cut it in desired shapes.
