Rawa kesari or Sheera as we often call in South India makes a good winter treat. Today, I have a fusion sweet, sheera with kiwi in it. A bowl of piping hot kiwi kesari  was one of the favourites of my daughter a few years back.

This is the 3rd post  of BM#96 with the theme “Winter Warmers” The other two posts were Badam Milk and Hot Chocolate Milk

Now, here’s the recipe for Kiwi Kesari

Ingredients:              Measurement used:1 cup =250 ml
1 cup semolina
1/2 cup  ghee
2 kiwi
1 cup sugar
6 almonds
6 cashew
1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
2 cup water

Method:
1 Peel the skin of kiwi, cut into big chunks and make pulp of it. Keep it aside.
2 Take a pan, add a spoon of ghee and roast the semolina along with the dry fruits. It should be golden in colour.
3 Remove the semolina in a bowl.
4 Add water in the pan. Put sugar and ghee to it. Once the water boils, slowly add the roasted semolina to it. Keep stirring otherwise lumps will be formed.
5 Once it slightly thickens, add puree to it. Let cook for sometime. Finally, add cardamom powder and remove from flame.

    Kiwi kesari sounds good. Pureeing kiwi is a cool idea. Nice twist to a classic recipe!

    Kiwi kesari is quite new to me. I initially thought the color would be deeper but then realized that it imparts a very pale color.

      Yes, colour is not deep. Thankyou for the visit.

    I have only tried plain rava kesari, I am yet to try the popular pineapple kesari and here you are with another version of kiwi. Have to bookmark this one as well.

    Nice addition of kiwi in kesari.It probably gives a slight tangy flavor, right?

      Yes, Harini, so we should not add more of it.

    Adding kiwi to regular kesari is so interesting. I have used mango and pineapples before, but never thought of Kiwi.
