'Rava Kesari' is an easy, basic and flavoursome Indian sweet dish. If you have unexpected guests, do this quick fix dessert, it is really mouth-melting.

1 Cup Semolina (sooji/rava)
1/2 Cup Sugar
1&1/2 Cup Water
A pinch of Orange Food Colour
1/3 Cup Clarified Butter (ghee)
6-7 Strands of Saffron
1 tsp Cardamom Powder
Dry Fruits for Garnishing

Boil the water and add the food colour in it. In another pan, heat 1 tbsp clarified butter, slightly fry the dry fruits and keep aside. Heat 3 tbsps clarified butter in the same pan, add semolina in it. Fry for few minutes, till it changes slight colour.

Add boiled water little by little and stirring the semolina same time, there should not be any lumps.

Add sugar now, keep stirring continuously. Add little clarified butter this time, sugar melts and semolina leaves the side of the pan.

Finally, add saffron and cardamom powder, fold nicely.

Serve garnished with dry fruits.
