BM #69 Week 4 Day 3 -
We are great fans of Rava Kesari in all forms. So when I saw Mixed Fruit Kesari in Srivalli's space, I was so tempted that I looked for an opportunity to make this for naivedyam the very next day.
We loved the kiwi, pineapple and the nuts in the kesari. I felt I could have added more banana but my older one was happy with the combo.
Here are the other flavors of RvaKesari I made before..

Recipe Source here.
Bombay Rava / Sooji 1 cup
Mixed Fruit, chopped 2 cups (I used apple, banana, pineapple and kiwi)
Sugar 1/2 cup (or more if preferred)
Water 1 1/2 cups
Milk 1/2 cup
Nuts and Raisins chopped 3 Tbsp
Ghee 2 Tbsp (I prefer adding butter instead)
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
Method Of Preparation -
In a heated pan, add ghee and roast the nuts and raisins. Remove and set aside. In the same ghee add rava and roast it until it changes color.
Meanwhile, boil 1 1/2 cups of water and add the mixed fruits and let the fruits boil for a couple of minutes.
Add the boiling water with fruits into the roasted rava. Add in the nuts and raisins. Cover and lower the heat. Let the rava cook for a few minutes.
After the rava is cooked add the sugar and milk. Mix well until the kesari comes together in a single mass. Add more ghee if needed.
Remove from fire. Garnish with the nuts and raisins and serve warm.
