Rava/Sooji/Semolina - 1/4 cup
Water - 1 & 1/2 cups
Beetroots finely grated - 1 & 1/2 cups

Ghee -2 tbsp
( add more if you want)
Chopped almonds - 15

Fry nuts in 1tsp of ghee till light brown & keep it aside.
Heat 2 tsps of ghee and roast the rava till slightly colour changes & nice aroma comes.
In another pan add some ghee & fry the beetroot till raw smell has disappeared,pour water and bring it to a boil.
Reduce the flame and add the roasted rava mix well make sure there are no lumps and cover it with a lid and cook till rava has absorbed all the water and is cooked.
Now add the sugar and in low flame cook till well combined.
Add extra ghee if your kesari is dry.
