Rava Kesari is a popular sweet from South India which is made with Semolina, sugar and loaded with Ghee. It just melts in your mouth and you just cant resist.. Now, why did I make this sweet today? Well, I was busy with my chores in morning when I saw my son singing Happy Birthday song. I asked him who are you singing this song for and he sweetly replied that its his Red car birthday 🙂 He made me wish his red car too and requested to make some sweet for his car and him. How can I deny such a sweet request 🙂
You can even make a double colour Kesari. Just avoid adding food colour in one portion of Kesari and layer it. So, sharing the recipe and hope you all make this mouth-watering sweet to celebrate special occasions with your family and friends.
