Rava Kesari (ரவை கேசரி)


Rava kesari also called as ‘Sojji’ (சொஜ்ஜி) is a frequently prepared sweet in the South Indian household. This can be easily made with ingredients normally available in your kitchen. You can serve kesari as a dessert, or a snack or as part of a feast menu. Children just love kesari!

Ingredients: (Serves four) 
Rava or semolina – 1 tumbler or 200ml measure
Sugar – 1 tumbler or 200ml measure (adjust to taste)
Ghee – a big hollow ladle or 75ml measure*
Kesari color – a pinch (optional)
Cardomom – 3-4
Raisins – 1 tablespoon
Cashew nuts – broken, 1 tablespoon

*You may add more ghee (up to 100ml) if desired. This will give rich taste to the preparation.

Method:  Remove the cardomom seeds, powder them and keep aside. Heat 1 tablespoon ghee in a kadai, add cashew nuts and raisins and saute till the nuts turn light brown in color. Add rava and fry till it turns golden brown. Switch off the stove. Add 1½ tumbler of water (300ml), cardamom powder and kesari color and mix well till the color is spread uniformly. Now add sugar and remaining ghee mix well. Cover and cook on low flame till kesari starts to separate from the sides of the kadai. Switch off the fire. Serve hot.
