Kesari Bhath (Rawa Sweet)

I had been thinking from a long time to prepare some sweet dish but here in Seoul its hard to find all the required ingredients(Grocery stores selling Indian food items are very less) so i had to settle with something simple but delicious sweet dish that is nothing but kesari bhath. Kesari bhat is very simple to cook and more ever its very gentle on stomach so you dont feel heavy after eating it :-)

1 cup Semolina (rawa)
1 cup Sugar
5 pcs Almonds, 5 pcs Pistas
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
2 pinches Saffron, soaked in 1 tbsp warm milk
Few drops orange colour (optional)
3 tbsp Ghee
2 1/2 cups Water

Cooking Method
Heat ghee in a large heavy pan, add rava.
Stir and roast on low for 7-8 minutes or till aroma exudes.
Side by side, put water to boil, add sugar, bring to a boil.
Add boiling water to the rava, little at a time stirring continuously. Take care to protect hands from the spluttering.
When well mixed, check rava grain between fingers and taste for sweetness.
Adjust sweetness, and add more boiling water if grain is hard.
Add the remaining ingredients, cover and simmer till ghee separates. Save a small amount of almonds and pistas for garnishing.
Add colour if desired and mix well.
Grease a steel cup. Press hot bhath inside it, and unmould onto a plate.
Garnish with a few slices of almonds and pistas, serve hot
Kesari bhath is ready to serve..
