Atukula kesari | poha sheera | flattened rice flakes halwa | poha recipes | gokulashtami recipes easy festival sweets

Kesari or Sheera is nothing but a sweet which Indians prepares mostly as prasadam in puja times. Rava sheera/ Kesari is one of the quite common sweet which I have seen in my childhood because it`s easy to prepare and need very few ingredients. So, my mom used to do make Rava Kesari as nivedyam in the festival days. I have already posted different Kesari recipes in the blog and below you can find the recipes links. 

Coming to this recipe, I have lots of rice flakes in the kitchen so the sweet called Kesari made me, try it with rice flakes. The process is so simple and easy to cook with simple ingredients. Food colour makes the Kesari attractive but it`s optional so you can avoid it if you don`t like. Instead of regular Rava Kesari try this next time and share your comments.

Now heat the same pan again, add 1 tablespoon ghee, roast dry fruits, add in ground rice flakes. Then add milk and stir continuously to avoid sticking in the bottom.
