Mango Kesari Baat.

Kesari baat or sheera is a sweet dish and normally prepared with Rava (Semolina) or wheat flour. Kesari baat and Uppittu (Upma) goes well like hand in hand called as chow chow baat. We can add banana, pine apple, apple, orange, chikoo (sapota) and mango fruits and prepare kesari baat.

This is a mango season, and varieties of mangoes are filled in the market. So thought of preparing Mango Kesari baat. I have used ripe mango, medium size rava, sugar, ghee, nuts and cardamom. It is an easy recipe and any one can give a try. I mean the person new to cooking also can do that.

Lets see some benefits of eating Mango Fruits.
Mango fruits are known as the king of fruits. It is one of the nutritionally rich fruit. It has unique flavour and taste. They are filled with good qualities. They are rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidant compounds.They are excellent source of Vitamin A. which is essential for vision. Vitamin A is also required for maintaining healthy skin. Fresh mango is a good source of potassium. Potassium helps to control heart rate and blood pressure. Mango fruit contain good source of vitamin B6, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. It has some amount of copper.
Lets see the recipe. As I said before it is very easy to prepare and yummy to have.

Things Needed:

Rava : Semolina (medium size) : 1 1/2 cup
Surgar : 1 1/2 cup
Cashews and raisins : 2 Tablespoons (cut cashews)
Ghee : 3/4 cup
Cardamom  : 4 to 5
Saffron/Kesari : 1 to 2 rakes.
Ripe Mango : 1
Water : 3 Cups.

Method : 

1. Remove the pods from cardamom and powder it. Keep it aside. Keep water for boiling.
2. Remove the outer skin of mango fruit and cut them into small pieces.
3. Keep a pan on the fire and add 2 tablespoon of ghee. Fry cashews and raisins.
4. Add rava/sooji and fry till the raw smell disappear.

5. Add boiling water to the fried rava and mix it. Stir nicely.

6. It starts thickening. Stir little more and add sugar. Mix it well. Add little ghee inbetween.

7. Keep stirring till it gets thick. Add kesar flakes and mix it well.

8. Add cut mangoes to the rava sugar mix. Mix it well till it gets the sides.

9. Add powdered cardamom and remaining ghee. Stir the kesaribaat.

10. Take out from the pan and put it on a tray or a bowl.

11. I spread it nicely so that you can cut them nicely.
12. Serve Mango Kesari baat with some chips or spicy fried things.

  Note :

Adding boiling water is a must. You can add rava to the boiling water instead adding water to the rava.It is easy to do. Adding more sugar and ghee is optional. Adding colour instead of saffron is optional. You can add turmeric instead of orange colour.(Food colour).
Adding more mangoes is also optional. I have used Bagana palli or Bangana palli Mango. One must fry rava nicely at least for 4 to 5 minutes to get rid of raw smell and to get good taste of Kesari Baat. Do not add savoury quality of mango. Kesari baat turn with savoury taste and you might not like it.
Time : 20 Minutes.
Serves : 5 to 6.
