Fruit Kesari

The most favourite dessert in my house has been the most easiest of them all which is always Rava kesari. My all-time favourite is Pineapple Kesari. What an amazing fruit is it?Fruit Kesari has a distinctive flavor as it does not have edible camphor or the cardamom powder. The aroma of the fruits in it, itself endears to the flavor of this sweet my daughter loved it very much. Sheera is called in the north; it is always a great treat to eat this simple yet delectable dessert. Fruit kesari is a sweet delight which is very easy to make. It has a slight variation from the regular ones that we add fruits here.The smooth texture of the fruits, especially bananas add a yummy taste to this sweet n just melts in the mouth.
