In my constant quest for quick cooking and short cuts in kitchen especially to help bachelors and kids who are experimenting with cooking with limited gadgets , vessels and provisions , I have come up with several multi purpose mixes which can be used to make one or more dishes .So in my ready to make series given below…
When you have unexpected guests for lunch you can make this dessert within minutes.
Pinch of saffron strands
3 tbsp ghee
Pinch of cardamom powder
Some roasted cashewnuts and raisins
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Let this cool completely.
Add saffron strands , powdered sugar , cardamom powder , roasted cashewnuts and raisins , mix well .
Use as required .
How to use the mix
Within 2 minutes the water is completely absorbed and kesari is ready . Remove when kesari mixture is a bit loose in consistency as it will become thick naturally on cooling .
Microwave In a microwaveable mug till mixture thickens . Kesari will be ready in a minute .
No need to add extra ghee or any ingredient . For extra richness you can add if needed . As this is a travel recipe we assume you do not have any other ingredient except the mix .
However if preparing kesari at home you can add more ghee if you like .
Serve yummy hot kesari .
The prepared mix will last good for upto three months .
