Posted in : SWEETS / UNDE/LADDU / BURFI / HOLIGE/POORAN POLI / HALWA on by : Divya Suresh

My Mom’s favourite sweet dish….. rice kesaribath. Now my yeldest son’s favourite too. It is very easy to prepare with few handy ingredients. It can be prepared with any kind of rice like sona masoori or ponni or jeera etc but becomes aromatic if prepared with Basmati rice.

 

 

        Ingredients :

  • Rice – 1 cup ( I have used basmati )
  • Water – 2 cups + 1/4 cup
  • Sugar – 3/4 cup ( I use 1/2 cup )
  • Ghee – 1&1/2 tbsp ( or according to taste )
  • Saffron strands – 1/4 tsp
  • Almonds – 2 to 3 tbsp ( chopped )

 

        PROCEDURE :

  • Soak Almonds in warm water for 10 minutes, peel the skin and chop it length wise
  • Soak saffron in little water ( warm )
  • Wash & rinse rice and cook using 2 cups of water and add saffron when the rice is almost done
  • Heat ghee add chopped Almonds, now add 1/4 cup water and sugar and stir till sugar dissolves
  • Let it boil well… then add cooked rice and keep stirring gently till it leaves the edges
  • Keep the flame on medium high
  • If you are using any other rice then you can add cardamom powder for that extra fragrance
