Kesari bath recipe, Karnataka style kesari bhath

Kesari bath is a very delicious Indian sweet prepared in Karnataka style using sooji, sugar and water. This kesari bath is very similar to sheera/ kesari prepared but is different in color and texture. Yes kesari bhath is little flowy in texture and is usually prepared in yellow color. This yellow color can be derived in 2 ways either by adding turmeric a natural agent or by adding artificial edible yellow food color. I use the first option always as it is natural and also good for health. Since we are adding tiny amount the turmeric taste will not be present in the kesari bath. Kesari bath is usually served as breakfast along with khara bath that I have posted earlier in blog a sooji breakfast. This kesari bhath can be prepared for festivals/ special occasions as well due to its simplicity. So lets get to the making of kesari bhath.
