Rava Kesari

Rava kesari is one of the most popular sweet in all over India. whether it is Suji ka halwa or Rava Kesari it is a very easy to make and favorite sweet for all Indians. In north India they know this as sujika Halwa and this is the very important offering for goddess Durga. In south India it is a most important offering for Satyanarayana Swami Pooja . I made this for Kanya bhojan which is celebrated on Deshara 9 days(any one day in those 9 days of deshara). On this day we invite 9 young girls and feed them with puri, halwa(rava kesari), and alu ki sabji. Today I am posting this very famous sweet recipe in this occasional theme as final recipe for BM 27 first week, so let's check the recipe..

I think it is one of the basic sweets everyone learns at the beginning of cooking. Still it doesn't take away the fact that it is a delicious one.
