In a kadai, first heat some ghee and fry the cashews and raisins and keep aside. Then fry the rava till golden brown and keep aside. Bring water to a boil and add the fried rava little by little and let it cook. Once the rava gets cooked, add sugar and ghee. Add kesari colour, cardamom and pachai karpooram and mix well. Garnish with fried dry fruits. Serve hot preferably with a spoon of ghee.
Note : For 1 cup of Rava, 3 cups of water is recommended as it will keep the kesari moist for a longer period.
