Rava Kesari


Rava Kesari is a south Indian sweet dish.Rava means Semolina and Kesari means saffron, It is a pudding made with semolina, sugar, Clarified butter.It is made during the festival and Special puja.Mostly yellow food color is used but I have used Saffron to get color & nice aroma.

On eve of Vasant Panchmi, prepared this sweet dish at my native place we do Puja of Goddess Saraswati There is a tradition of eating different varieties of sweets are offered to Goddess which includes yellow colored sweet as well.

Rava Kesari is like a Sooji Halwa which is prepared using roasted Rava(sooji) till it brown in color and cooked in water and Rava Kesari is lightly roasted to prevent browning & cooked.

Ingredients

Semolina 1 cup

Saffron 20-30 strands

Water 1.5 cup

Clarified Butter(Ghee) 1/4 cup +1 tbsp

Assorted Nuts 1 tbsp

Sugar 1/2 cup or to taste

Green cardamom powder 1/2 teaspoon(optional)

Method

Heat a pan add 1 tbsp clarified butter( ghee )and fry the nuts. Set them aside.In the same pan, add Rava and sautéed it continuously stirring often and roast on low flame for 5 minutes or till it turns aromatic and Remove on a plate and keep aside.

To the same pan, add sugar, water, and saffron bring to boil on a medium heat keep stirring so that sugar dissolves properly.Reduce the flame to low. Slowly add the Sauteed Rava to sugar syrup mixture, stirring constantly to avoid lumps, Cook until the moisture is absorbed.Add 1/4 cup ghee and mix well.it will start leaving the sides of the pan. Add green cardamom powder & Switch off the flame

Mexican Flan


Flan is a traditional Mexican dessert and there are many versions. It is a rich, creamy, cooked egg custard. it’s flavored with vanilla and baked in a water bath to retain its texture.

Ingredients
Egg -3
Sugar-1 cup
Evaporated milk -1 tin
Condensed milk- 1 tinVanilla extract -1 tbsp
Whipped cream..optional
Method

Preheat oven to 350°F.Select 2 oven safe containers, one that can easily fit inside the other.The large one will be used for a water bath and the smaller one will pour flan.mixture.Fill the larger container a little less than halfway with water and place in the cold oven to heat up while you prepare the caramel and the custard.In a large pan, caramelized the sugar until it turns a light golden brown .While still hot, transfer the melted sugar to baking container swirling it around until the entire bottom is covered then set aside.In a blender add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.Open up the oven where you have placed the water bath and then place the small pan with the caramel inside the large water bath pan.Pour the mixture into the pan being careful not to splash it.Bake for 30- 45 minutes until the top is golden brown and the center passes a toothpick test.Remove from oven and allow to cool on a rack.You may invert this onto a large serving dish or Cut a piece & serve with a dollop of whipped cream

Tips :-Let it cool down or keep in a fridge for 24 hrs. when serving put hot water in a bigger bowl and keep baked flan bowl in it so that caramel should be easily come out
