By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Last two days has been pleasantly exciting.  One of my friend delivered a beautiful Baby Girl.  I was shunting between home and hospital helping them with the Cutie Pie!!!! So, today's post is a sweet post to celebrate the occasion. Rava Kesari/Sooji Kesari, a sweet dish made using semolina, milk and sugar.  This can be made in a jiffy, takes about 15-20 minutes.  
This is Part of the Breakfast Thali 2 : Venpongal, Brinjal KothsuCoconut Chutney, Lentil Vadai with Badam, Rava Kesari/Sooji Kesari.
1/ Cup Rava/Sooji/Semolina
1/4 cup Sugar
 1 Cup Milk ( i used Low-Fat)
1/2 Cup Water or Milk
a pinch of Orange Food Color
2-3 tbsp Ghee/Clarified Butter
1 tbsp roasted almond flakes for garnishing
  • In a Non-Stick Pan, add a tsp of Ghee/Clarified Butter and Roast the Rava/Sooji/Semolina until it turns golden and a nice aroma arises. Take care not to burn the Rava/sooji/Semolina.
