Kesari Bhaat, the South Indian counter-part of the sheera, is an ever-popular sweet treat for young and old alike!

Perhaps due to this reason, you will find the Kesari Bhaat is a part of most breakfast or lunch combos at South Indian restaurants.

It is a quick and easy sweet dish made of rava, sweetened with sugar, and flavoured with cardamom and kesar. Often fruits like pineapple, chickoo or apple may also be added to the Kesari Bhaat.

Kesari Bhaat is very popular in South India, especially Karnataka. You can also try sheera recipes like Moong Dal Sheera or Walnut Sheera
