Kesari is a very popular sweet in Tamil Nadu. This recipe is a variation of the original kesari. Rava | Sooji is substituted with Semiya. This serves as a emergency saviour recipe. If you have no time to make something for your guests the last minute or when you crave for sweets instantaneously, this is your ideal dish.
Try this the next time you crave for a quick sweet. You can shape it as you like or just spoon it from a bowl. Either way it is too good.
- Roast the cashews and Vermicellli in ghee.
- Cook the vermicelli in water and milk. Once it is completely cooked, add sugar. I had some sugar candies in excess, so I used them. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the remaining ghee and toss the roasted cashews.
