Rava Kesari(Easiest way without mess)

The soul rejoices dreaming unheard future- Shalini Samuel

Ravai or Sooji - 2 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Water-1 cup
Cashew Nuts- Few(Roasted in ghee)
Colour Powder

Follow the measurements strictly.


Roast two cups of Sooji along with ghee. You are adding ghee so not too mess later. Or else you would end up with lumps of sooji and sugar or you will have some sticky glue at the end.Roast it till yellowish brown . Keep it aside.

Boil one cup water. Now add the roasted sooji slowly, and keep stirring  avoiding lumps.When sooji has been cooked, add the sugar. Now carefully stir so as the sugar melts it doesnt form lumps with sooji or it sticks to the vessel.Add color powder, yellow or red as you wish. Its just to make the dish attractive.You wont be having time to move here and there, so keep everything near you and be brisk. Once sugar mixes completely add roasted cashew nuts and a tablespoon of ghee. Transfer it to a tray. If you wish, you can make it into pieces once it cools.

Easy and simple sweet. But too sugary, if you are health conscious  you cant eat it!! If you wish you can reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup.If you reduce ghee it wont be smooth and slippery, but it still tastes good.
