ABOUT Apricot milk rava kesari RECIPE

Whenever people drop in or when we call people for virunthu(we invite newly married couples for lunch or dinner), the first sweet which amma makes is kesari,Kesari is a staple southindian sweet, it is so simple to make. But sometimes if you miss a measurement or add less ghee, then kesari can turn out so sticky. Instead of water, i added milk. And i added some saffron and lots of apricots in it. I even cooked this kesari a little longer so i made pieces out of it. Mostly kids luv swrets,, we cant satisfy that ,so we add in it helathy ingredients,,so ia give teiat of apricots n natural colour saffron with milk ,I hope you will try this out and let me know how it turned out..
