Kesari (Microwave Version)

KESARI (MICROWAVE VERSION)

Hi Everyone..

I wanted to prepare something in the microwave today. I wanted to prepare a sweet very badly and couldnt stop thinking about rava kesari.

I have a microwave oven in which the highest is 800W. SO adjust the timings accordingly.


Ingredients:
rava (roasted) - 1/4 cup
water - 1/2 cup + 4 tbsp
ghee - 2 tsp
cashews - 4 - 5
sugar - 1/8th cup
raisins - 2 - 3 tsp
orange colour - 1 pinch
cardamom - 2


Method:
- in a microwave safe bowl add 1 tsp of ghee and add raisins and cashews and microwave on high for 30 secs
- now add the rava, sugar and water
- add the colour and mix well
- now microwave on high for 4 mins
- keep stirring in between
- again microwave for another 2 mins after adding ghee and crushed cardamom.
- mix well
- serve warm

Adhirasam

ADHIRASAM

I made this recipe when I was travelling to Chennai. I made this as a surprise gift to Mom. Mom was so happy and she liked it. I learnt this recipe from one of the books I had collected years ago.

I have posted the pictures of both the dough and the fried adhirasam.
This is the original recipe. But I had made a blunder in the recipe where even after two days the dough was a kinnda thin and was not stiff. I took help from Shanthi Aunty and added some more damp rice flour to the existing dough and made it stiff. So now I have changed the ingredients accordingly.

Thanks Shanthi Aunty. The recipe came out well. Mom was really happy with my gift.

Ingredients:
rice (paccha arisi) - 1 cup
jaggery (grated) - 3/4th cup
cardamom - 10 - 12
oil - to deep fry


Method:
- soak rice in water and leave it aside for 1 hr
- drain the water and spread the rice on a cloth and allow the cloth to absorb the excess moisture.
- now grind the rice to a fine powder in a mixer grinder while its still damp
- seive the rice and use only the fine particles.
- now add 1/4 cup of water to the jaggery and bring it to boil
- strain the jaggery
- again bring the jaggery to boil and allow that to boil until the syrup forms as a ball when dropped into the water.
- this consistency is before the string syrup.
- meanwhile crush the cardamoms and add that to the damp rice flour and mix that well
- slowly add the syrup to the mixture and mix well
- add the syrup little by little and mix until all the syrup is used.
- keep that in the room temperature for 3 - 4 days before preparing the recipe
- while preparing the adhirasam, add oil to the pan
- take small balls of the dough, and pat them into flat rounds and drop them into the oil
- while the dough puffs up, turn them the other side and then while removing from them oil, hold the adhirasam between 2 laddle and press them well until the oil are well drained.
- serve them.
- this could be stored in an airtight container for more than 20 days.

Coconut Boli

COCONUT BOLI

Ingredients:
dry coconut / coconut powder - 1 cup
jaggery - 1/2 cup (adjust according to taste)
cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
water
ghee - as required
oil - 4 - 5 tbsp
maida - 1 cup

- make dough using maida, salt and water
- make a soft dough
- add oil and make a very soft dough and let that sit for 2 hrs
- meanwhile make the filling
- you can either use fresh coconut or dry one
- i dont like fresh as that has the milk smell, so used the dry coconut
- add jaggery, coconut and cardamom powder
- add little water ( 2 tsp max) and mix well
- this allows the jaggery to mix well and then when the mixture resembles a thick halwa consistancy remove and allow that to cool
- when cooled make balls out of that
- meanwhile make balls with the maida mixture
- roll into 2 " roti by adding sufficient oil
- then place the coconut filling inside and then close it
- roll them into nice round roti's
- Iam sorry mine is shapeless as Iam preparing this for the first time though I have tasted this thousand of times in SRI KRISHNA SWEETS, Annanagar, Chennai
- then fry them as you make chappathis in a hot tava, but instead of oil add ghee which enhances the flavour to the best.

I really miss my Granny at this point. She makes this everytime I meet her in her village.. I love this sweet but have a vague idea that this would be the ingredients and this is how they make until I made and that turned out be the tastiest.. Thank God I didnt go wrong!!!!!!!!!
