Orange Kesari

Fresh oranges from the garden make this traditional Indian dessert delicious. The sugar cuts the tartness of the orange and citrusy taste goes well with semolina and ghee.


Semolina 1 cup

Orange juice 1 cup

Water 1/2 cup

Sugar 1 cup

Orange zest 1 tsp

Ghee 2 tbsps

Cashew nuts 10

Saffron few strands


Dry roast the semolina in a heavy bottomed frying pan and keep it aside.

Add a teaspoon of ghee to the same pan and fry the cashew nuts till they are brown. Keep it aside.

Add the sugar, orange juice, water and saffron to the same pan and stir till the sugar dissolves. Add the zest. Bring to a boil.

Add the roasted semolina, stirring all the time.

Add the ghee and roasted cashew nuts.

Stir well till the water evaporates and the semolina is cooked.

Serve hot.
