Pressure cooker rava kesari recipe | Easy to make Pressure cooker kesari recipe, perfect beginner recipe. Rava kesari in a pressure cooker – recipe with step-by-step instructions and full video.

Rava kesari | sooji ka halwa is a popular and simple Indian sweet. It is made with rava | semolina | sooji, and sugar. Though it is a very simple recipe, many people get lumps while adding water to the roasted semolina. Especially while scaling up the recipe and making it for a huge crowd, there are chances that you get lumps.

This recipe is a foolproof Rava kesari recipe, made in a pressure cooker and a perfect one for beginners. I saw this recipe in Arch’s flavour factory and tried it a long time back. It was a huge success. From that time itself, I wanted to post this recipe. Recently for a temple gathering, I made the same recipe with 3 cups of Rava in a 5-liter pressure cooker and it is a huge success. I made everything in 45 minutes and used just 2 vessels and I can say it is a no-hassle recipe.

During my initial days of marriage, I once made kesari for a group of 25 people and messed up while adding the roasted sooji in hot water. It created lumps and I had a very tough time, breaking the lumps. If you are a beginner and want to make kesari either on a small scale or large scale I highly recommend you try out this recipe.

If you are planning to make Kesari in bulk for Navaratri guests or any other family function, I highly recommend you to follow this method.

Equipment

  • Pressure cooker
  • Sauce pan

Ingredients

  • ½ cup rava
  • ¼ cup oil + ghee
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped cashew nuts

For sugar syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2 pinches kesari color | orange food color
  • ½ tsp cardamom powder

Instructions

  • In a pressure cooker add the ghee and oil. I took equal amount of oil and ghee. If you want you can take full ghee itself.
  • For vegan version use oil only.
  • Using oil and ghee maintains the texture of the kesari even after few hours.
  • Use any neutral oil. I used sunflower oil.
  • Add the cashew nuts and rava |sooji to the oil ghee mixture.
  • Add everything at the same time.
  • Simultaneously, on the other stove, keep the water in a saucepan and add the sugar, kesar food color and cardamom powder.
  • Let the sugar get dissolved, no need to get any string consistency.
  • Let this boil in a medium flame.
  • Roast the rava in low- medium flame for 3-5 minutes.
  • Once you see the cashew nuts are turning golden brown it is the right consistency.
  • It will take around 4 minutes.
  • By this time the water must be boiling.
  • Switch off both the stove.
  • Add the sugar syrup to the roasted sooji | rava.
  • It will be watery only, so do not worry.
  • Mix well.
  • Close the cooker and place the weight on it.
  • Keep this undisturbed.
  • After 20 minutes, open the cooker.
  • Mix this from sides. Perfect Rava kesari is done.

Notes

1. I used 2 litre pressure pan for this recipe.
2. If you are doubling the recipe use a bigger size cooker as it will fluff up.
3. I once made it with 3 cups of sooji in a 5-litre cooker for a temple function and turned out perfectly well. It also retained the same soft texture for 4-5 hours.
4. You can use jaggery or brown sugar too.
5. You can add a few pineapple bits to the water and make it pineapple kesari too.
