How to make South Indian rava kesari :

  • In a heavy bottom pan dry roast rava for a few minutes stirring it constantly till a sweet aroma is released and the color changes to mild golden. Take it out and keep aside.
  • Now heat 1 tbsp of ghee butter in the same pan and fry cashew nuts and raisins and keep them aside.
  • In a separate pan heat 3 cups of water. Make sure to always use hot water so that no lumps are formed and the rava gets cooked completely.
  • To the the remaining ghee add the remaining clarified butter, rava and fry for few minutes.
  • Now add the boiling water to the rava mixture and a pinch of orange food powder and saffron. Keep stirring constantly.
  • After the rava gets cooked completely, add sugar and mix well till it dissolves. Now add cardamom powder.
