Very Easy


1 cup chiroti rava (sooji/semolina)
1 cup sugar
2cups water
3tbsp ghee
1 pinch of yellow colour
5-6 strands of kesar or saffron
15-20 cashew nuts
8-10 raisins
3-4 cardamoms


Remove the skin and powder the cardamoms (if you have the practice of boiling your drinking water, add the cardamom skin to it/ add it while making tea, gives a good flavour)
Fry cashew nuts and raisins in ghee till light brown and keep aside

In the same pan, add little more ghee and fry rava until there is a slight change in the color (it’ll also smell different)

Boil 2 cups of water in a vessel. When it begins to boil, add kesar, yellow colour and sugar

Add the rava little by little to avoid lumps (be a little slow and careful here)

Sprinkle cardamom powder (hmmm! Love the smell?)
Simmer and cover with lid so that rava cooks well.
Top it with the remaining ghee (sinful but you don’t make it everyday!)
Garnish with raisins and cashew nuts.

This dish can be served hot/ at room temperature or chilled
