For this recipe all we need the same ingredients which we use for Rava Kesari but with extra ingredient watermelon instead of saffron. Firstly Chop the watermelon by removing the green part as well as the seeds. cut the watermelon into cubes and blend to puree. Even the small cubes of watermelon are also allowed as it tastes superb. That means no need for smooth puree or filtering of the juice. Before preparing for the watermelon Kesari roast the dry fruits, dry fruits in the sense whatever you have. I use almonds, cashews, melon seeds, and raisins. Not only these, but ones can also use any variety of dry fruits like walnuts, pistachio, etc. Then roast the semolina ( Rava ) in ghee. Roast on low flame till it releases a nice aroma. This is one of the main procedures for the tasty Kesari.

Finally, I want to highlight some of my sweet recipes like,
