    hi mullai
    I regularly follow few of dishes which came out really good, but i tried this kesari twice the rawa did not cook well may be i felt becoz of water measurement plz reply me. I used the same measurement as u given.

    thank you

      Hello Revahi,
      Juicy pineapple will yield some water and hence i have mentioned 1 cup water. When you heat up the sugar, pineapple and water… make sure you don’t boil for a long time, as soon as you see the first boil, add the rava and cook over medium flame to avoid lumps and to cook the rava soft. We at home use this measure but if you think the rava has creamish specks then add another 1/2 cup water. I have also updated the recipe with one alternate method which you can try. Thanks for your feedback!

    hi mullai, yesterday i tried this dish for my hubby’s evening snack,with a doubt in the mind because he don’t like much experiments in traditional tastes….but he liked it very much….its really yummy although i used little less ghee then required…thanks for the recipe.

    Hi Mullai,
    I wanted to try it as soon as i saw this recipe. I had never tasted this kesari before. So made it and tasted it for the first time. It was so good. The sweetness and a hint of tanginess… wow..Delicious.

    hi mullai,
    i regularly chek ur site it is very nice this same rawa kesari can be made with slight diffrence
    the propotion is 1 cup rawa 2 cup sugar 3cups water . add little ghee and fry the cashews the add water directly and let the water boil add colour the add rawa and slowly mix until it starts becoming like upuma then add sugar it will become liquid again and add cardomom and ghee and stir until the kesari becomes like halwa cool and serve this propotion is so yummy its an all time faviourite in my home

    Hi mullai, It is really so yummy and mouth watering when we see the picture….And i would like to point very small spelling mistake in the description "In the pan with leftover ghee roast the raw over low medium flame for 3 minutes" where instead of "rawa", "raw" is there..Since first time when i read i got confused so i would like to share the one for others….. Thanks mullai for this awesome recipe…Continue Ur good work
