Poha Kesari Recipe
Aval Kesari - I didnt plan to make this aval kesari....I wanted to make poha halwa but last minute craving for kesari made me try this :) If you are not confident / scared about trying out seedai,murukku recipes here is an easy recipe for you....I just made it like rava kesari recipe and it did satify my kesari craving :) After the kitchen disaster I planned to keep it simple this year with homemade butter and aval urundai for gokulashtami which is a day away...Whats your plan?

Poha Kesari Recipe

My Notes:

  • You can add a pinch of cardamom powder instead of saffron just for variation.
  • Switch off when its slighting in flowing consistency as it will become thick while cooling down.
  • Adjust water level - may be you can start with 1/3 cup add poha,check then add remaining water.
  • Dont compromise on ghee as thats the main ingredient which adds great taste to this kesari.

  3. This is to swoon for! So delicious looking, I wish I could have it now for dessert. Are you from Tamil Nadu? We were in India for 5 years and my mother took Bharat Natyam lessons from Guru Krishnamoorthy who was from Tamil Nadu. I think my mom is also following you, she's saucysiciliana.blogspot.com
