Kesari Bhat

Recipe by  

"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."

The first time I made this was for Diwali, with a family visiting from India (I am not Indian nor am i particularly familiar with Indian cooking). Stressful! I thought it was delicious and they seemed to like it, 4 stars.
