Kesari or Kesari Bath

Hi all,
Today I am sharing a very simple recipe which is a universal favourite sweet dish. Kesari or Kesari bath. It’s very simple sweet which you can quickly make within 10 minutes. Yes. It’s that simple.

The tricky part in making this is there should be no lumps formed. But not to worry. If you follow this recipe, there is no way you ll get lumps. Just a little practice and you ll be a pro. 
Cooking is that simple.

So let’s dive straight into the recipe.


Rava/Semolina – 1 Cup
Sugar – 1/2 Cup
Ghee – 3 tsp
Cashews – 4 to 5
Raisins – 4 to 5
Water – 2 Cups
Cardamom – 1 pinch
Kesari food color – 1 pinch (Optional)


Take a pan and dry roast rava till it turns aromatic and slightly changes color. Transfer it to a plate.
Add a teaspoon of ghee to the same pan and roast cashews and raisins for a minute. Transfer it to the same plate and switch off the gas.


In a kadai add water and sugar. Keep it in medium flame. Let it start boiling. Now add the cardamom powder and Kesari food color and give it a mix.

Now keep the flame low and slowly add the roasted rava and keep mixing so that there are no lumps formed. Now add the dry fruits and the remaining ghee and mix it. Cover and cook for a minute to make sure the rava gets cooked well.

Tadaa.. Hot and yummy Kesari is ready!!

Please note: 
1. The quantity of ghee can be increased according to your taste. For health reasons I have given the minimum quantity.
2. You can skip adding the Kesari powder and add saffron strands instead. 
3. The quantity of sugar can be increased according to your taste buds. I don’t like it too sweet. 😜
4. You can add other dry fruits like almonds and pistachio too.
