Kesari - the South Indian way !

Cooking time - 20 mins

Wanna make a quick mouth-watering sweet/snack? Try the kesari! You can skip adding the colour if you're not very particular about how it looks..!


  1. Bombay rava - 200 grams 
  2. Sugar - 350 to 400 grams (depending on how sweet you want it to be)
  3. Ghee - 150 grams
  4. Cashews
  5. Food colour (yellow) - 2 pinches
  6. Cardamom (powdered)
  7. Water - double the rava

Fry the cashews in some ghee, and set it aside once it turns brown (as in the pic below).

Pour some more ghee, add the rava and keep stirring.

After a minute, add water (mix the colour powder to the water) in the above mentioned quantity and stir continuously till the rava cooks.

Keep adding the remaining ghee from time to time and continue stirring.

Once the mix thickens, add the cardamom powder and the cashews (leave a little to spread on top once done). Keep stirring for another 3 - 5 minutes before turing of the flame. 

The kesari is done..  ! You can now transfer it to a container after spreading ghee on it's surface.

Let it cool down, cut and serve!
