Rava Kesari recipe, how to make rawa kesari. A very often made sweet in Indian homes, this rava kesari is pretty simple and tasty to make.
This sweet will be little different from the ones you might have seen before. We will fry the rava really well in ghee till golden brown and fry the nuts too in it along with sugar before adding the water. The frying part gives a nice crunchy flavor to this humble sweet and elevate it to different level. I feel it has more the taste of the dum ke seviyan.
You can even make this with jaggery. You can finely grate the jaggery and add it in place of sugar. But make sure there are no impurities in it. Even the most basic beginners can make this easy sweet with finesse. Some people add saffron or food coloring to the rava kesari recipe, but I do not use any, as the dark golden brown color from frying gives an amazing color to the sweet.
