Fruit and nut kesari- easy sweet recipes

fruit rava kesari I am bored of baking cakes? No..thats not the truth. The baking bug has bitten me. I would want to make cakes and cookies everyday. My blog seemed like some baking blog one day(I would't mind that). Not only that , my family also got bored of eating cakes frequently. And I too needed a change.I decided to stop baking for sometime and try making other sweets and desserts. I have bookmarked so many of them. So when it was my birthday last month, I made this fruit kesari and for my hubby's birthday last week, I made carrot halwa. But could not take a photograph, so will be posting the next time I make it . This kesari was definitely good, a small change from the regular , plain one.

Ingredients-
Rava/sooji/semolina- 1 cup
Granulated sugar- 3/4 cup
Apple- 1 small, peeled and cut into fine pieces.
Cranberries- a few
Almonds - 5
Cashews- 5
Raisins- 5
Milk - 1 cup
Yellow edible food colour- a pinch dissolved in the milk
Ghee- 1tbspn

Method-
Heat the ghee in a pan. Add all the fruits/dry fruits and saute for few minutes. Then add the rava and keep stirring till it just begins to get slightly golden in colour and gives out a nice aroma. Then mix sugar in it and stir for sometimes. Add the milk (with dissolved edible colour). Add a cup of water if needed and stir till it becomes thick. Serve hot.
