Goduma Rava Kesari (Broken Wheat Kesari)

This weekend I had a few guests over during tea time. I wanted to try a different sweet which would not take too long to make as well. I took out my favorite author Mallika Badhrinath’s book and decided to make this recipe. The outcome was well appreciated. This is the prasadam given in Annavaram Satyanarayana Temple (Andhra Pradesh). It is also called Lapsi. Considering the regular Rava Kesari, this is a healthier option. So here’s the recipe




Ingredients

1. Goduma Rava/Broken Wheat – 1 cup
2. Powdered Jaggery – 1 ½ cups
3. Water – 3 cups
4. Ghee – 3 tblsps
5. Cardamom Powder – ½ tsp
6. Cashews – few
7. Kismis / raisins– few

Method

Heat a heavy bottom Kadai or Non stick Kadai with about 2 tblsps of ghee. Add the Broken wheat and fry for about 3 to 4 mins. Then add 3 cups of water. Give a good stir and cook covered in low flame till the broken wheat gets cooked and the water is completely absorbed. In the meanwhile, in another vessel add the powdered jaggery and dissolve it in little water. Strain for impurities and keep aside.

Once the broken wheat is cooked add the jaggery syrup and mix well. Keep stirring till the jaggery syrup is absorbed completely. Add few drops of ghee if kesari sticks to the pan. Remove from heat when the kesari leaves the sides of the Kadai.

Heat a small frying pan with a little ghee, fry the cashews till golden brown, then add the raisins and remove quickly. Add these to the kesari. Also add the cardamom powder and mix well.

Tasty Goduma Rava Kesari is ready to eat.

Hi nice one... but can you tell me is this the same as what in Sikh Gurudwara they give as Wheat Halwa? That will not be grainy like Wheat Rawa but tastes so nice like kesari only.
