Just to share with you......
During my childhood birthday's, along with Cake my mum used to make Kesari.I used to wear new dress (especially I like pattu/Silk skirts) and carry chocolates,Cakes and kesari to my neighbour's palces.I used to get pinches and kisses back.
I am from south India, Tamil Nadu. Itz our tradition to give guests the sweets first when they are coming for the first time.So when I have no sweets at home I used to make Kesari since it is a easy-to-make recipe.
Kesari is an easily made, low cost, delicious dessert and made generally in every homes of South India for any small occasion.
