Fruit and nut kesari- easy sweet recipes

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.
