Kesari bath/Sheera is a sweet dish. Kesari bath and khara bath (Upma) is a yummy combination.

Kesari bath is prepared using Rava/Semolina, sugar and ghee as main ingredients. It is very easy to prepare this sweet dish, We normally prepare this sweet dish for poojas and festival or feast. As I said earlier it goes well with Upma. So people have the habit of eating kesari bath and Upma together.
I have used Semolina/Rava, sugar, ghee and cardamom.
We can have them for breakfast. It can be served as sweet dish during the lunch or dinner. We can have them as snack too.
Things Needed :
Rava ( Samolina) : 1 cup
Sugar : 1 Cup
Ghee : 1/2 cup cup
Cardamom : 4 to 5 pods
Safaron: : a pinch ( or colour)
Water :  2 Cups
Cashew Nuts : 5 to 6

Method :
1.  Powder cardamom.
2. Keep water for boiling
3. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Add a spoon of ghee and fry cashew nuts.
4. Add rava and fry nicely till the raw smell goes off. Now add boiling water and mix it well.

5. Add sugar when the rava starts thickening . Stir nicely.
6. Add saffron and 2 table spoons of ghee.
7. Stir uttil the mixture turns to thick and leaves the sides of the pan. Add crushed cardamom.

8. Add the remaining ghee and put off the fire. Shift ready Kesari bath to a bowl or plate. Spread it evenly.

9. Mix it nicely once again and serve Kesari bath .

Note :
Roast rava nicely till the raw smell disappears.  Adding more/less ghee is optional. You can add kesar colour instead of saffron. The use water should be 1 = 2. (I cup rava = 2 cups of water). Medium size rava is better to use to get a good result. Adding more/less sugar is optional.
Time : 15 Minutes.
Serves : 3 to 4
