How to Make Rava Kesari

  1. Using a mortar and pestle, crush the cardamom pods to a semi-fine powdered form. Repeat this for the saffron threads. Keep both aside.
  2. Cook ghee in a wok at medium flame.
  3. In another pan, mix sugar and water. Bring to a boil at medium heat. Add the powdered saffron.
  4. Stir ghee and when it is hot enough, add rava. Add sliced cashews immediately, stirring continuously.
  5. Cook the sugar syrup at low heat and let it simmer. Bring to a rapid boil.
  6. Stir the rava mixture continuously for 6–8 minutes or until light golden. Add the sugar syrup and mix well, until it turns semi-thick in consistency.
  7. Turn off the heat and cover the pan for 4–5 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
