Easy Peasy Semolina Sweet / Rava Kesari

Lets make something sweet today...this one is liked by all alike.. This one is actually a favourite of South Indians.. and my mom makes this much much better than me.. Yeah guys.. and hence, this recipe comes straight from her..Usually, I have seen that many of my frnds n relatives make this with water however, I am using milk instead. You may opt for any of these.


Semolina / Rava /Sooji : 1 cup
Milk : 2 cups
Ghee : 1 cup
Sugar : 2 cups
Cashew : a handful
Golden raisins : a handful
Crushed cardamom : 1/2 tspn
Yellow powder & Orange powder
  • Heat 1/2 a cup of ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and fry cashews n raisins n keep aside. 
  • Fry rava in the same pan under low flame, stirring constantly until it turns slightly pinkish. Keep aside.
  • Boil milk along with a small pinch of lemon n orange colour each mixed into it and add sugar and keep stirring occasionally. 
  • Now, add the roasted rava slowly into the boiled milk and keep on stirring under low flame to avoid lumps. Allow it to cook. We require more amount of liquid content for the rava to get cooked. So, if you feel the milk is less, you may add more until it gets cooked or may add water instead. Check sweetness and add appropriately.
  • Keep on stirring to avoid sticking to the bottom. Add ghee occasionally in small quantities until the rava starts coming off the sides of the pan.
  • Sprinkle crushed cardamom and garnish with fried cashews n raisins.Serve hot or cold.
