Stepwise pictorial recipe of Tiranga Kesri made with milk.

Kesari is nothing but a Halwa made of Rawa which we often make during festivals & on the occasion of some Pooja at home. Usually Rawa kesri is made with water and so much of ghee but I have tried this kesri with milk and very less ghee.

As the day of Independence in India is nothing less than a festival so I have made an attempt to present this kesri in Tricolour.


Rava/ semolina/ Sooji- ½ cup

Sugar- 5-6 tbsp

Milk-2 cups + 2 tbsp

Ghee- 1 tbsp

Cardamom essence or powder – ⅛ tsp

Green Food Colour – 2-3 drops

*Orange food colour – 2 – 3 drops

Nuts of your choice (I used almonds, Raisins & Magaz)

  1.  Take a pan, add milk & place it on gas stove for boiling.
  2.  Take 2 small bowls and add 1 – 1 tbsp milk in both the bowls.
  3.  Add green colour in one bowl & Orange colour in another. Keep aside.
  4. Take another non stick pan, add ghee and roast the rava till it turns light golden brown.
  5. Once the rava turns golden brown, add the boiled milk & stir well. Keep stirring to prevent the lumps from forming.
  6. Add sugar and cardamom essence & mix well.
  7.  Once the milk is absorbed, switch off the flame.
  8. Take 2 bowls & divide the kesri in 3 equal portions.
  9. **Add green food colour (already dissolved in para 3 above) in one portion, Orange in second & leave the third portion as it is.
  10. Mix the colours well with spoon.
  11. Now take a glass and make a lower layer with green coloured kesri. Level it with the help of a spoon.Sprinkle some nuts over it.
  12. Likewise make a second layer with colorless kesri, level it & sprinkle some more nuts.
  13. Again make third layer with Orange coloured kesri and garnish with more nuts.
  14. Your Tiranga Kesri is ready to be served.

*I didn’t have orange food colour so I mixed yellow & red food colour to make it orange. 3 drops of yellow and just a touch of red.

**If you feel that the kesri is little dry, add 1 – 2 tsps of milk to make it soft.
