Kesari (Strawberry flavoured)

This is strawberry flavoured kesari. Hershey's strawberry syrup was sitting in my cupboard for sometime. I love its flavour and colour. I didn't know it would come out this well. The result was very tasty. I made this for a few friends of mine and they all loved it. Here I haven't added any extra colour. It is the colour of the syrup. Do try this one for your kid.

  • Rava/semolina - 1/2 cup
  • Water - 1 cup (boiled)
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Cardamom - 5 
  • Hershey's strawberry syrup - 1/3 cup
  • Ghee - 3 tbsp

  • Powder sugar along with cardamom seeds. Keep aside
  • Heat a pan and add rava. 
  • Dry roast it for 2-3 minutes till you get an aroma (don't burn it).
  • To this add boiled water and stir on low flame. If required add more water so rava cooks well. (Mash all the lumps)
  • Once it has cooked add sugar-cardamom powder and stir well. 
  • Add the Hershey's strawberry syrup.
  • Allow it to thicken. Stir occasionally. It will thicken soon. 
  • Now add ghee and stir until it starts pulling away from the pan. (it becomes a mass and doesn't stick to the pan)
  • Grease a plate with ghee and spread this kesari onto it. 
  • When it cools down cut into desired shape and enjoy.
