Rava kesari

Rava kesari is an easy to make Indian sweet. It is made in South India as a breakfast item in Karnataka, accompanied by uppittu. In Kerala, where I hail from, we have it as a desert. I often make this at home, especially when we have an impromptu guest and they love it. Try it at home and let me know how you liked it. photo (16)
