Step 1

Cook basmati rice (in such a way that each grain should separate) and spread it on a broad plate. Allow it to cool.

Step 2

Soak saffron in milk.

Step 3

Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan.

Step 4

Add cooked rice and fry for a few minutes.

Step 5

Add sugar to it. As the sugar dissolves, it`ll look bit watery. Keep stirring till ghee separates.

Step 6

Add soaked saffron with milk and mix nicely. Turn off the heat.

Step 7

Add raisins, cashews and lemon juice.


Thanks for the wonderful recipe of Kesari Bath. Everyone in my family loved it... :-)
