Quick Coconut Semolina/Rava Treats - Yummy Festival Feast - Diwali

Its a weekday evening.. and an important festival, you just got back from work.. and you want to make some kind of traditional sweet things.. ! You want to make not only the sweet things but have a whole menu planned out for the evening..This will come in handy for such days :) (Which seems to be too frequent for me this year.. since all the big ones seem to be falling on week days this year ) With little effort and very simple ingredients, its sure to please your family..


Ingredients:
2 Cups Fine Sooji/Semolina/Upma Rava
2 Cups Dry Coconut Powder
1 1/2 Cups Sugar (you can add 2 cups if you like more sweetness)
7 Oz Evaporated Milk (You may have to buy a 10 Oz can and use appropriate part of it)
1/2 tsp Fresh ground cardamom powder/Elaichi powder
1/2 stick butter or ghee
1/2 cup almonds (coarsely powdered and roasted in some butter/ghee - you can use Cashews too)
Some slivered almonds for decoration

Process:

Add some butter to a wide pan, add the rava and roast it until you smell the nice aroma of rava. Powder the coconut and sugar. And mix them to this rava and stir for a few minutes on low heat. Add the cardamom powder, the almond powder and mix well. Measure and add the required amount of evaporated milk. Mix once and turn off the heat. Stir in the mixture well into the milk until all the milk is absorbed into the mixture. Make sure there are no dry rava lumps... Put this mixture in a wide plate or dish and use a spatula to even it out. Let it dry for a few minutes.. Cut into desired shape.. Decorate with the slivered almonds and serve after they are completely cold and dry. Takes atleast an hour.. or so. Wait until completely dry before storing.

Enjoy !

This recipe is for the event that I am currently hosting..
