Bansi Rava Bath | Indian Sweets

Sometimes I end up thinking I shouldn't follow something just for the heck of it. Well it's been a long year to come to that state of mind. When same day last year, made me think that I ought to follow a tradition because I am so used to it, made me think otherwise. It's been a long year, but a year that will forever remind fresh in mind because of the many incidents that happened.

Come to think of it, I remember each year with the major events that took place. Guess all of us do that. But some years don't feature much in mind because nothing significant happened. The year that passed was most memorable in ways I can't get to explain well. You loose some friends, you gain some. The sadness that grips when you think of those times, makes it worse. Life goes on...

I cherish the friends I got back. I met my friends from school. What more can one ask than meeting those people with whom you spent your teen years. Those wonderful moments of innocence itched on mind, gets you feeling so touched. I even got back in touch with my college friend. So it's been pretty good.

Amidst all the confusion that seem to prevail for ever, I finally decided I am not going to make a stuffed paratha. Sometimes not following a tradition makes it all the more fun. Moreover I have exhausted all the ideas I have, well not really but for now I guess. 

Though for now I thought I will share this Sweet made with Bansi Rava. I love the way Bansi Rava tastes when made this way.

Bansi rava - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 & 1/2 cup
Ghee - 3 tbsp
Water - 3 cups
Cardamon powder

Add another tsp of ghee, roast the Bansi Rava till it comes out non - sticky. Remove and keep aside

Heat the pan with water, bring to rolling boil. Add Sugar and let it dissolve.

Then add the rava little by little so that lumps are not formed.
