Sajjige/Rava Kesari Type 2

Sajjige this is a sweet prepared for Sathyanarayan Pooja or Pournima Pooja or any ocassion. This was prepared by my Mother in law for Aadi Perukku. It was very tasty. I have prepared another version of Kesari Bath and Pineapple Kesari taught by my  Dad.

Chiroti Rava/Upma Rava - 1 cup
Water -  2.5 cups
Sugar - 1.5 cups (If you like less sweet can reduce accordingly)
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Banana - 1/2 no(chopped)
Cashews/Raisins - 2 tspns
Elachi powder/Cardamom - a pinch

Preparation Method
Boil water and keep aside.
Heat a kadai, add 1/2 tspn ghee and fry cashews and raisins till brown. Transfer it to a plate.
In the same kadai, add 1/2 tspn ghee and roast rava till you get good aroma and slightly brown.
Now add warm water and mix it. You can use whisk for easy mixing and to avoid lumps.
The mixture should not be very thick it should be thin. Reduce flame and wait till rava is completely cooked.
Add little ghee and mix. Now add sugar and mix well. Add chopped banana, a pinch of elachi powder and mix well.
It should not be thick. So it will be soft later. Add left over ghee.
Off the fire and add the fried cashwes and raisins.

Offer to God and then enjoy.

Sajjige is ready for Prasadam.

Notes :

- You can skip banana and prepare. 
- You can also lessen ghee and add oil or vanaspati.
- Can be consumed within 2-3 days, need not be refridgerated.
