I am starting to feel dizzy and tired a lot more nowadays, i am on my 7th month and well you guessed how it feels. But i am trying my level best to post daily as usual. I am clicking as many recipes as i can to post in the coming months. I will be leaving to my mum's place within few days after my baby shower. I hope i will share lots of my mothers recipes in the coming posts. You will love it for sure.
Now coming back to today's recipe. This is another sweet which we make often next to rawa kesari. It is yummy and different to normal sweets. You dont need much sugar as you use for rawa kesari. Make sure you use the correct amount of water for this, because adding more water may result in a mushy kesari, which you dont want. Other than that everything is easy. I hope you will love it and let me know if you try it.
