Microwave Rava Kesari



Ingredients:
Course Rava(Sooji)1/2 cup
Sugar3/4 cup
Ghee2 tablespoon
Cashews7 or 8
Cardomom powdera pinch
Kesar color
Hot Water
a pinch
1.5 cups
Step1:
Add 2 tsp of ghee in a microwave safe bowl and mix the rava well


Step2:
Microwave this is for 2 minutes. Check and stir for every 30 seconds. Do not allow the rava  to get burnt


Step3:
Add 1.5 cups pf hot water to the roasted rava and mix well. Add the kesar color as well


Step4:
Now close this bowl with the lid (Do not close too tight) and microwave on high for 5 minutes


Step5:
Take it out and add sugar and cardomom powder and mix without lumps.Microwave this is open bowl for 4 minutes


Step6:
Now add the remaining ghee and microwave in high for 1 minutes


Step7:
Allow a couple of minutes standing time and pour into greased plate


Step8
Allow it to cool for 10 minutes and cut into desired shapes and garnish with cashews fried in ghee.


Notes:

  • If you like more sweet add 1 cup of sugar
  • This can be either had warm as such or cut into pieces.Generally I would cut into pieces when serving this sweet cold.
  • Add only hot water to the rava. You can microwave water for 1 minute in high and then add it
  • There are chances that lumps might form while adding sugar. Mix it thoroughly at this stage
