Ravva KesariRavva kesari is one of the simple and delicious desserts which can be made in minutes. Texture and aroma of Suji ka halwa compells us to eat more. Usually this recipe can be made on any festive occasions like Diwali and Ganesh Chaturthi for offering lord as naivedya.

In Sanskrit, the word Kesar means saffron colour, so as the colur of ravva kesari. In order to attain this colour we will add kesar strands soaked in water as a natural colour. For those who feel its expensive may switch to synthetic colour by adding into water and mix.

In order to get additional flavour i have roasted upma rava (suji) with ghee. Also rava should be dropped into sugar syrup only when it starts bubbling. One should be careful while dropping rava as there is a change of forming lumps so we need to stir continuously.

If somehow lumps are formed then we need to lower the heat and break the lumps with spatula. Lumps formed will not absorb sugar syrup and gives you odd feeling while having it.
