Kesari Bhat

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"This is a traditional Indian sweet, prepared all over India. It is the standard offering to God, that is cooked as 'prasad' after a 'Pooja'. This recipe is made using 1 1/4 of any measure(instead of one) by Hindus as they believe using the extra measure will usher in prosperity and happiness."
