Blogging Marathon# 43: Week 2/ Day 3
Theme: Navarthri — Festival Special
Dish: Rava Kesari (Godhuma rawa Kesari)

Here’s another simple sweet dish that is made for festivals. Kesari can be made with either sooji/ semolina or godhuma rava. I like the fine godhuma rawa/ dalia because texture-wise it is like sooji, but with the added goodness of the wholewheat instead of refined sooji.

Since my husband is milk-phobic, I usually skip it or add only just a little bit to give the kesari/ halwa some creaminess. It takes about 12~15 minutes total to make this dish and all you need is 3~4 ingredients.
