Indian sweets are without a doubt famous and favorite especially the ones which are made during festivals like Diwali. It is interesting how the new variations to traditional sweets also taste equally delicious. You can even combine traditional sweets with fruits for a unique flavor and taste too. Orange kesari is one of the dishes that will impress anyone. In some places, it is also called orange sheera. It uses rava or semolina as one of the main ingredients. And as the name gave it away, the second main ingredients are oranges.
Semolina is healthier than white flour as it is coarse and not flour. It is made from a rougher variety of wheat. White flour, on the other hand, is rich in simple carbs without fiber and protein. Warning: If you are prone to gluten allergy avoid semolina.
Oranges are rich in citrus limonoids, proven to help fight different kinds of cancer including that of the skin, lung, breast, stomach, and colon. Since oranges are full of soluble fiber, they are helpful in lowering cholesterol. Oranges are full of potassium, an electrolyte mineral responsible for helping the heart function well.
