SOOJI HALWA/RAVA KESARI

Welcome to my cookbook Cookerypoint - Ila's Kitchen. Guys, today my recipe is yummy and sweet Rava Kesari. This recipe belongs to South Indian Cuisine. This is very easy and simple sweet which always comes in handy for guests. The main ingredient is Semolina and sugar. These are basic ingredients which will be always in home. So, lets go to our yummy sweet....



Ingredients:

Sooji/Coarse Semolina - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 2 1/2 cup
Cashew nuts - 1 tbspn
Raisins - 1 tbspn
Almonds - 1 tbspn
Ghee - 3 tbspn
Food colour (Saffron) - pinch (optional)
Salt - pinch

Preparation:

Heat ghee (or) butter in a pan and add cashews,raisins and almonds.
Put it in low flame and fry for few seconds and add semolina to it.
Roast sooji in low flame until it becomes light brown colour.
Stir sooji continously to avoid lumps which will take five minutes.
Now, add sugar to roasted semolina and add water immediately to it.
This continous action will help to avoid lumps.
Put it in high flame and stir until required (Upma) consistency.
Now, add food colour dissolved in water to halwa which is optional.
Its time to add sugar if extra sweet is required.
Add pinch of salt and put it in low flame and cover with lid.
Remove from heat when water is absorbed well.
Now, Rava kesari is ready to serve.


Serving Suggestion :

This South Indian Recipe can be served as sweet with the South Indian Thali. This yummy Rava Kesari can also be served for occasional festivals.
