Happy Tamil New Year (Virothi) with Rava Kesari :-)  

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

என் நண்பர்கள் அனைவருக்கும் இனிய புத்தாண்டு நல்வாழ்த்துக்கள். இந்த வருடம் அனைவருக்கும் நற்செய்திகளுடன் மகிழ்ச்சியாகவும் ஆரோக்கியமாகவும் அமைய இறைவனிடம் பிரார்த்திக்கிறேன்.

So for all my blogging friends and visitors, I pray to God for good health and happiness in this auspicious day of the new year. Have a blasting new year friends! :)

As for today's post, I wanted to start this new year with a sweet, so went for a simple one, Rava Kesari (Semolina Sweet).


Rava (Semolina) - 1 cup
Sugar - 1.5 cups
Water - 3 cups
Ghee - 2 or 3 tsp
Cashew nuts - 5 or 6
Raisins - 10
Grated almonds - 1 tsp
Cardomom powder - a pinch


1. In a tsp of ghee, fry rava till it turns golden color and keep aside.

2. In a tsp of ghee, fry cashew nuts and add to the rava.

3. In a large pan, boil water and add rava (with cashews) slowly while stirring the water continuously.

4. After a couple of minutes, add sugar and cardomom. Keep stirring continuouly until it becomes thick and consistent in nature.

5. Garnish with raisins, almonds. If desired, add a pinch of saffron strands.
