Quinoa Kesari

I tried out making kesari today with quinoa coz my sweet tooth was craving for some sweets, immediately instead of using rawa i tried out making kesari with quinoa by cooking them in cooker with sugar and milk and finally cooked until they turns thick with some ghee and topped with fried cashews and raisins which i spiced up with some cardamom powder, u can prepare ur kesari even by cooking them in vessel as i wanted them to get ready quickly i prepared by pressure cooking which took very less preparation time..This kesari tastes absolutely divine, a prefect delicious sweet to enjoy warm for snacks with a cup of coffee, just love it..Sending this yummy quinoa kesari to Celebrate Sweets-Warm Desserts guest hosted by Priya,event by Nivedita..

Do check my buddies Divya Vikram,Harini,Jay,Kamalika,Ila,Padma,Pavani, Priya Mahadevan ,Suma,Vatsala,Veena,Priya Vaasu wat they are cooking for blogging marathon..

Hi Quinoa, brought me to you :), i love using this grain, I too made this kesari with pineapple in MW, that was my first MW cooking!, I am scared to use only quinoa, my kids wouldn't may not enjoy it., Your kesari looks gorgeous, hope if if I lived near you, I could had a parcel of it!, A very rich protein diet :)
