Kesari Method II

Have tried making often the regular kesari ... once one of my friend told me to do slight variation to that ...instead of adding kesari colour add grated carrot and it will give u good colour ....wanted to try that ...and there came Srivalli's event : Colouring your kids delight .
My son loved this a lot and he enjoyed it well... I am sure kids will love it and this method I feel it is quite healthy too...sending this to srivalli's event.

Ingredients Needed :
  • Rawa - 1 cup
  • Carrot - 2
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Milk - 2 cups
  • Ghee - 2 tsp.
  • Cashew nuts or Badam - 5
  • Raisins - 10
  • Elachi powder - 1/ 2 tsp.

Peel the skin of carrots and grate it and keep it ready. In a kadai add 1/4 tsp. ghee and fry the rawa, and set aside. In the same kadai, add 1/2 tsp. ghee and fry cashew nuts or badam and raisins separately and keep it aside.Add ghee and add the grated carrots and fry for few mins then add roasted rawa + milk + sugar and allow it to cook well ...keep stirring it often ..and make sure no lumps are formed ...once the rawa is cooked u can switch off the gas add elachi powder, fried cashew nuts and raisins and mix well .
    No need to cook the carrots well ...the crunchiness of the carrots also tastes good.

    • Salt

    • Oil
    Method : 

    In a bowl mix wheat flour + maida + salt and mix well and add water, little by little and knead the dough well and set aside for 10- 15 mins. in meantime ...chop onions finely and add a handful of poha + chilli powder + turmeric powder + garam masala powder + lemon juice and mix it well and keep it aside.
    after 15 mins of resting time , take little dough and roll it like chapathi ...
    heat the tawa and fry this chapahti's for few seconds on both the sides and
    cut the chapathi like samosa sheets and keep it ready ...in a small cup take little maida and mix it with water and make it like a paste ...now fold the samosa sheets in triangle shapes and fill it with the onion fillings and seal the ends with the maida paste ...in a kadai add oil for deep frying , once the oil gets medium hot fry these samosas till it is done ....Hot hot mini - onion samosas are ready ...
      Saw this recipe also in Vahchef's video ...

      Note :
      adding poha absorbs all the water from the onions in the original recipe , it says that we need to deep fry it twice ...so that onions also get cooked well ....I did not do so ...my onions were little raw only ....but the taste was so good ...u can try both the ways ....
