    suggestion

    Dear Chitvish and others,

    I would like to suggest a couple of additions to the ingredients of kesari. My mother-in-law makes very nice kesari (which in kannada is called sajjige) and apart from the ingredients u have mentioned she adds the following

    Milk - a tablespoon or two (a spoon of milk powder can be used instead)
    Badam powder (MTR badam Feast) - 2 teaspoons

    I also make the same way and It tastes real good.

    Thanks, Mrs.Chithra for the reply and Prathi, yr tip seems to be so good. will implement the same.

    Mrs.Chithra, since we are adding fruits in the kesari, what is the lifetime? As we are adding watery fruits, do I have to reduce the water qty in the beginning? And, finally, as Prathi mentioned, have u tried making kesari with full milk or half milk half water and how the taste will turn out? Any idea, both of you???

    Take yr time and reply me..

    Thanks once again.

    Fruit kesari

    Hi Ami

    You can make rava kesari in microwave oven in the method suggested by Mrs.Chithra. I tried the recipe and it turned out really very well. As Prathi has suggested you can make kesari by adding half qty milk and half water. That is for 1cup rava you can add 1cup water and 1 cup milk(full fat)

    Regards

    Life of fruit kesari

    The shelf life of fruit kesari is , at the most , 2 days.By second day , you should use it up .
    Definitely use 2 cups water , not less , since otherwise rava will not be completely cooked.
    For ordinary kesari you can add milk - but for fruit kesari , i have not tried & hence not competent to answer.

    orange and honey .........

    Hello Chitra,

    Is this orange and honey preparation called thokku???

    Do u mean the normal oranges or the smaller variety???

    I prepare something like ur recipe but out of "Hirelakkai"" (in kannada), this fruit tastes like lemon but slightly bigger in size - normally people use it to make lemon rice or in kannada called CHITRANNA.. This fruit is more sour, bigger than lemon in size and is supposed to have medicinal value. Are u referring to this fruit, when u say kamala?????

    I normally don't use the skin in my recipe.. but from ur recipe it looks okay to use the skin too....maybe after scraping out the white pith...
