Rava Kesari Recipe -- How to make Rava Kesari -- Easy Sweet Recipes

Rava Kesari
Rawa kesari or Rava Kesari, is the most easy sweet. It is made with Semolina or Suji. It is made during Satyanaraya Swami Vratam puja in my home, but with a little changes and the color will be white or light golden color.
When I was a kid it is served in marriages. I used to love it and asked my mom to make as it is served. She is so lovely always make it for me specially. I used to love that color and the shape mainly that diamond cut. I called it 'Diamond Sweet'.
Whenever I wish to have sweet I prefer make only two sweets one is this and the other one is Semiya payasam or kheer.
