How to Make Mango Kesari

  • Heat water in a thick-bottomed pan or a deep, non-stick pan.
  • Measure sugar and rava together in a bowl.
  • Once the water starts boiling, reduce the flame completely and pour the rava-sugar mixture, while stirring continuously.
  • Make sure you keep stirring while pouring so that it doesn't form lumps anywhere.
  • Keep stirring on medium flame until it thickens slightly.
  • Now, add the mango puree and mix well.
  • Once it all thickens, add ghee and keep mixing until it rolls into a ball without sticking to the sides of the pan.
  • Fry a few cashews in ghee and add it to the kesari.
  • Mango kesari is ready.
