Aval Kesari

Aval kesari is my husband's favourite sweet. So, as it is New year today, I prepared this lovely sweet. This will take less than 30 minutes for the preparation.




Ingredients:

1. Aval/Poha - 1 Cup
2. Water - 1 Cup
3. Milk - 1.5 Cups
4. Sugar - 1.5 Cups (or) Needed qty
5. Ghee - 3/4 Cup
6. Cashew - 1/4 Cup (Broken)
7. Cardamom - 6
8.Kesari Powder - A pinch

Procedure:

1.Roast the aval to golden brown with 1/4 tsp of ghee.
2.Grind to a coarse powder in mixer (Sooji consistency).
3.Roast cashew and cardomam with 1 tsp of ghee and keep aside.
4.Now, in a pan take water and boiled milk.
5.Add kesari powder and sugar. Allow the contents to boil well.
6.Now,add coarsely powdered aval, while stirring continously.(This will avoid lumping)
7.Lower the stove and add 1/2 cup ghee and mix well. So that contents won't stick to sides of the pan.
8.After about 10 minutes, take out from stove and add remaining ghee,cashew and cardomom.
9.Mix well and serve hot.
