This post is full of bright saffron color today. Because I made a bowl of orange rava kesari where the winter fruit orange tastes exceptionally good. The traditional rava kesari all by itself has the most delectable taste and orange enriches it to the max. So the glossy orange colored rava kesari with lots of nuts and ghee makes your lunch a kind of feast. My dear friends, you just take a minute right now and drink in those virtual smells. Are you ready? The orange-y flavor from the zest. The ghee oozing glossy texture. The sugary sweetness plus tang of orange chunks and bits of cashews and raisins. Oh my gosh, it’s absolutely overwhelming!!
Something about this humble dessert is always soul touching. As you work on the grey day of winter month till evening, on the way back you naturally find yourself craving for a cozy dessert. Like this orange rava kesari? Isn’t it? In my case it was 99% true. My hunger pangs used to roar for some delicious, heart filling sweet. Because winter season is like that. The appetite for delectable food races to the top but co-incidentally the weather doesn’t help in cooking such food awesomeness.
The best part of this orange sheera is it’s less time demanding. It hardly needs 30 minutes of time from assembling ingredients till garnishing. The orange which I bought was seeds-free. Meaning time to remove the seeds from pods before juicing it is saved. I didn’t even strain the juice to make it chunks free. Because I love the orange chunks in my rava kesari. The sugar and ghee which makes this dessert glossy, shiny and mouth-watering has to be appropriate. Otherwise it greatly impacts on the texture department.
So since the season of Orange is ON, before it disappears from market, try to create this magic in your kitchen. And when you do, remember me for a fraction of second!!!
