For the mango puree, cut the flesh part of the 1 big or 2 small mangoes  and blend it in the mixer. Adjust the measurement of milk according to the amount of mango puree.

In a kadai heat 1 tbsp of ghee, fry cashews and raisins. Transfer it to a plate and keep it aside.

In the same kadai roast the rava in low flame until nice aroma comes. Transfer it to another plate and keep it aside.

In the same kadai boil the milk for 5 min, add the mango puree and let it be in low flame for another 2 min. Now add the sugar, adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of the mango..

When the sugar has dissolved add the roasted rava slowly by stirring continuously. Be careful not to form lumps, keep the stove in low flame and keep stirring until all the milk is absorbed. Add rest of the ghee when stirring the rava.  

Add the roasted cashews, raisins and cardamom powder/Elachi Powder and mix well. Keep stirring until rava leaves the sides of the kadai.

Yummy and delicious mango kesari is ready to be enjoyed.

    However after adding the mango pulp to the milk, the milk curdled...
    does this happen ? how to prevent the curdling?

    1. Hi shruti,
      Sorry for the late reply, thanks for trying the mango kesari. Do not let the milk to come to lot of boiling . One quick tip, boil the milk in milk cooker, cool it. Next add it to the Kasai in the stove, add the mango pulp when it is just warm enough. This will prevent from curdling, keep the stove in sum and not high.
      Thanks a lot, all these tips should help u, it has never curdled for me before. Do try it and let me know...
      Bye keep visiting...
