Aval Kesari / Puffed rice Kesari

Aval kesari is a thing which I prepare when we got bored of usual rava keasri and semiya kesari....Takes almost same time as usual keasris...but taste wise gives a good change...Don't cook it very mushy and thick poha is preferable...The texture of poha should be there in kesari too...Make this simple yet yummy sweet and enjoy...


Thick poha /Aval3/4 cup
Water3/4 cup
Sugar3/4 cup
Cashews1 tblsp
Raisins1 tsp
Salta pinch
Ghee2 tblsp
Grated Coconut
1/4 cup


Clean aval/thick poha and soak it in water for 5 to 10 minutes(for quicker cooking, since I used thick poha...Skip this for thin poha)....Drain water and keep aside...

In a wide pan, heat ghee and fry the cashews and raisins till golden brown and puffy....Remove and set aside...In the same pan, bring water to boil and add food color and soaked poha/aval...

After poha gets cooked well and become soft...Add sugar,a pinch salt and cook till desired consistency is reached...Add the coarsely grated coconut and mix well...Top with little ghee if desired...

Wanna try these:
