Print Friendly and PDF
I came to know about this kesari from my school friend Swarna.It was very new to me because i've tasted kesari made with rava / semiya. When she told about this i found it interesting. I made for my friday pooja . It came out well and tasted excellent. We loved it.Its very simple to do. Try this and let me know ladies !!

AVAL KESARI 1


INGREDIENTS
  • POHA / THICK AVAL - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar - 1/2 - 3/4 cup
  • Water - 3/4 cup ( U can replace water with milk too )
  • Ghee - 2 -3 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Cashews - A few
  • Orange-red food color / Kesari color - a pinch
METHOD
  • Heat a kadai with a tbsp of ghee and fry the cashews. Remove and set aside.
  • Now add the aval/poha in the same kadai and fry till it gets roasted with a nice aroma.U can add another tbsp of ghee while roasting.
  • Now grind the roasted poha to a coarse powder.This enhances quick cooking.
  • Take the measured water in a bowl by adding food color.Allow it to boil
  • Now add the ground poha and Cover cook for 10 mins stirring in between.
  • Once the poha gets cooked, add sugar and mix well.
  • Add a tbsp of ghee at this stage. Mix well.
  • Stir constantly for few minutes ( may be 10 - 12 mins).At one stage the kesari becomes non sticky and leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Add the roasted cashews and cardamom powder . Mix well and transfer to a bowl .
Serve hot !!
