You can roast the rava in ghee if you prefer.

Keep in low flame and add rava slowly and stir continuously to avoid forming lumps.

Adjust the sugar according to your preference. Can use 1/2 cup for very little sweet and use 1 cup if you want it more sweeter. 3/4 cup is perfect for me. I used brown sugar. You can substitute with white sugar

You can use saffron or turmeric powder for natural coloring.

Use generous amount of ghee to get melt in mouth texture

You can grease plate with ghee and spread the kesari. Once it is set you can cut them as neat pieces
