Kesari Recipe | Rava Kesari Recipe | Sooji Kesari


Kesari

Kesari is a south indian dessert which is believed to be originated from Karnataka and this is a popular dish made during ugadi festival.The word kesari refers to the saffron used in the recipe, resulting in orangish yellow tinge. This dish is prepared with variations all over india and the base Rava/Semolina/Sooji, Sugar and Ghee remains the same. Its known as Kesari bhath is Karanataka, Sheera in Maharastra, Sooji Halwa in the North India, Rava Kesari in Tamilnadu and Andhra





Rava kesari is one of the easiest desserts which can be made very quickly. It doesn't go wrong if we follow three basic tips - adding correct amount of water , keep stirring it initially to avoid lumps and switching off flame at correct stage (it should hold some moisture which will give smooth consistency to the recipe). This recipe can be done by adding milk as well but the life will be short, usually we make it without adding milk.

Finally i would like to add my other sweet recipe collection for Diwali celebration along with this recipe, Carrot HalwaRasamalaiGulab JamunMysorepakGasa gasa Payasam

Note:

  • If there is lumps nothing to worry continuous stirring will make the kesari smooth.
  • Dont overcook the rava until it becomes dry, it need little bit of moisture for the soft texture
  • You can add more ghee which will add to the taste and flavor, but if you are health conscious 2 TSP will be enough for this quantity.
  • If you dont have food color or dont like to add it you can ignore it or add saffron to give nice orange tinge.
  • Usually i add a pinch of salt in all the sweet dishes it will enhance the sweetness, as i did this for Shivarathiri i didn't add it, if you prefer you can add it to experience the magic it creates.
  • Some like the taste of edible camphor you can add mustard seed size of it if you like along with cardamom powder.
