Making South Indian Rava Kesari :

In a large pan dry roast rava(semolina) for a few minutes stirring it continuously till a sweet-smelling aroma is released and the color changes to mild golden. Take it out and keep aside.
Next heat 1 tbsp of ghee(clarified butter) in the same pan and fry cashew nuts and raisins and keep them aside.
In another pan heat 3 cups of water. Make sure to always use hot water so that no lumps are made and the rava gets boiled entirely.
To the residual ghee add remaining clarified butter, rava(semolina) and fry for few minutes.
Now add the boiling water to the rava(semolina) mix and a pinch of orange food powder and saffron. Keep stirring frequently.
After the rava(semolina) gets cooked absolutely, add sugar and mix well till it melts. Now add cardamom powder.
Garnish the rava kesari dish with dry fruits like cashews nut, raisins and present it hot.
