MW Butternut Squash & Barley Kesari

Kesari, my dear H love this delicious sweet dish..usually kesari is prepared with either with rava (roasted semolina)or sometime with vermicelli( semiya)..I tried out this kesari with rava and barley meal which is prepared myself at home with whole barley grains...I grounded a cup of barley grains thrice and by sieving the grounded barley flour, i got a half cup of barley flour and barley meal..i used this barley meal with rava to make out this kesari cooked in butternut squash puree and milk in microwave oven...Its really very easy to prepare kesari in microwave oven and it tooks few minutes to cook...I used some left over butternut squash puree instead of using food colour as the puree of the butternut squash itself gives a terrific orange colour to this delicious sweet...We loved this yummyilicious buttenut squash and barley kesari warm and my lil ones relished each and every spoons..


2cups Butternut Squash puree
1/4cup Milk
1cup Roasted rava
1/2cup Barley meal
1cup Sugar
1tsp Cardamom powder
10nos Cashews
1/4cup Ghee
2pinch Salt
Few pistachios nuts for garnishing

Heat butternut squash, milk and sugar in a microwave safe bowl for 10minutes (high), stir in between until the sugar gets dissolved..now add the roasted rava, salt,barley meal and cook for 20-25minutes (high) again, stir in between every 5 minutes, heat the ghee in a another bowl for 5minutes, add the cashewnuts to the hot ghee and cook again for 5 minutes in high until the cashewnuts get slightly brown..add this hot ghee,cardamom powder and cashew nuts to the already cooked kesari and stir the kesari well and serve warm..

Enjoy!!!

  27. gr8 idea abt using squash in a kesari! I cooked this on stovetop and found that 2 cups squash puree + 1/4 cup milk was too less to cook the rava and the barley. I had to add about 2 cups of liquid (water+milk) as the mixture was getting stuck n burnt. Will this affect the taste/texture of the kesari? How to cook with less liquid, without it getting burnt? Thanks!
