This rice kesari bath recipe would have been a great post for Navaratri, if I had posted it in the beginning that is the first day itself. But you know me right?? my list of Diwali recipes is little overwhelming and I couldn’t tweak this visually appealing rice in between.
Saffron strands are new thing in my life, and here is the thing about it – you don’t need much of it to give your food a really strong and divine flavor. An interesting fact about saffron strands is the pleasant color that gets infused to the food in which it is in. Like this apple kesari. It’s just so very aromatic and appealing.
So with all this new saffron strands feeling, rice kesari bath came in to being. Rice is roasted in ghee for a while and then cooked to perfection in simmer till it is done like soft and pulpy. Continued cooking with generous sugar and ghee, makes the rice grains look glossy and luscious. It is then the saffron strand inclusion for attractive color and ghee fried cashews plus raisins for nice crunch in the dessert.
Posting rice kesari bath in this space is my way of seeking blessings from Goddess for good health and prosperity.
