Again come up with millet recipes.. Kesari is my family favorite, so whenever we crave for sweets, immediately prepare some kesari with semolina/rava or vermicelli... But today, I have tried my favorite sweet with millets, Yes! I have prepared the kesari with varagu, samai and thinai millet. Super combination and very tasty kesari. 

Making the kesari with millet is my long time wish, but now only I got time to do it. I strongly, recommends to you, try at once, you will love it. The taste is quite unique compared to rava kesari but am sure it will be more delicious.

NOTE 

  • You can use any one millet also in the same style. 
  • To healthier version, I have added oil instead of ghee, if you like ghee add it. 
  • After grind the roasted millets, I got 1 Cup rava, so added 3/4 Cup sugar and its correct sweetness, if you prefer more sweetness add 1 Cup sugar. 
  • Pour boiling water over the mixture, will help to cook soon and prevents lumps. 
  • Food color is optional. You can add saffron soaked milk for the color too. 
  • Add boiled milk instead of water to get rich taste.
