Kesari Bath

Hi Friends,
             Kesari bath is the traditional dessert from Karnataka. It is a famous dish which is prepared during the festivals like Ugadi.... 
In North India we make Suji Halwa in the same way but don't add kesar (saffron) or yellow colour in it.

Kesari Bath dish can be prepared not only as Dessert but can be prepared for Breakfast too and can be served along with Uppittu (upma) ,both the dishes in equal quantity one plate is popularly called as the "Chow Chow Bath".


Ingredients:
1 cup Rawa/Semolina
1 cup sugar
1  cup Ghee

2 cups water
1 cup  milk 
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1/8 tsp of kesari/yellow food color 
1/4 cup cashew and raisins in fried in 1 tbsp of ghee





Method:

  • Take a  kadai, heat 2 tbsp of ghee, fry the rawa  until you smell the fried rawa's aroma  slightly turning brown. Remove from fire and keep it aside. 

  • In the pan, heat 1 tbsp for ghee. Fry cashews and raisins for 5 seconds. Remove from gas stove, keep them aside.

  • Add half quantity of sugar, water and milk along with 1 tbsp of ghee and bring it to boil on a high flame.

  • Add the Kesari or yellow colour color.

  • Now turn the heat to low and start adding fried rawa slowly into the sugar mixture. Keep stirring continuously to avoid lump formation.

  • Once the sugar gets dissolved completely and raw smell of rava leaves and its fully cooked. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
  • Now add remaining ghee on the top of the Kesari bath and keep stirring continuously till the kesari bath starts leaving the sides of the Kadhai.
  • Lastly add the roasted cashews and raisins mix well and remove from gas stove.

  • Serve hot.


Note: 
 Three main ingredients Semolina, Ghee, Sugar can go in the ratio of 1:1:1 for best results...... Water and main ingredients ratio must be 3:1

I love Kesari bhath. Almost all traditional Kannada recipes use whole cloves in Kesari bhath for some strange reason.
