 Aval Kesari is one of the easiest sweet recipe which is done in many households in South India during festival time. This can be made very quickly and can be served to sudden guests. Here we use aval /poha instead of rava which is the main ingredient for kesari.

Ingredients to make Aval Kesari

  Aval / Poha -    1  cup
  Sugar   -    1 1/2 cup
  Water    -  3 cups (approx.)
  Ghee    -     2 tbsp
  Cashew nuts -   5
  Badam / Almonds - 5
  Kismis / dried grapes - 8
  Cardamom powder -  a pinch
  Kesar  / Orange colour   A pinch

How to make Aval Kesari Recipe

1. Heat a kadai, add aval and dry roast for about 5 minutes. Carefully stir and switch off when the aval turns light brown.

2.  Allow the roasted aval to cool and grind then this into a powder similar to the consistency of rava.

3. Boil water in a vessel and keep it ready.

4. Heat a pan and add a tablespoon of ghee.

5. Once the ghee melts, add powdered aval and stir well.

6. Next add boiling water slowly to the aval and stir continuously. Always cook over low flame. When the contents become slippery and non sticky it ensures complete cooking of the aval.

7. Now add sugar to the aval and cook until the sugar dissolves completely.

8. Finally, add ghee and roasted raisins to the Kesari and remove from the flame.

Yummy Aval Kesari is ready and can be served with Medu Vada or Masal Vada.
