Without lid.

Rava should be roasted well so that it gives a good taste. We can add elaichi powder for more added flavor

Just a small note:
Cashew is a fruit
Cashew nut is the nut that is used as a garnish
Person   ()
Cashew is the name of the fruit which has 2 parts - the fleshy fruit called the cashew apple and the nut attached that is called the cashew nut.

We can prepare rava kesari and keep in fridge and after a day we can take it out in room temp for some time and again put in in oven by adding a spoon of ghee it will be very fresh and tasty..

can we prepare rava kesari one day befor the party and keep it in fridge? shall we microwave again on the day we use?

Reply :-
Hi sunitha, I've never made rava kesari ahead of time for parties. So i'm not sure of how it would be. The kesari would become little harder while in the fridge. Other than that I think it should be fine,
