Mango Kesari | Mango Sheera | Mambazham Kesari

Mango Kesari, a quick to make sweet from semolina and mango pulp. Kesari is the most favorite sweet in our home, often made for evening tea along with some savory snacks. 

To me, Amma makes the best kesari in the world, her kesari literally melts in the mouth like butter. I still clearly remember  that in my school days, whenever there was a small function in any one of our close relative's houses, they would ask Amma to make kesari. 

Yep, her kesari was/is so famous in our family circle. Seeing her making this often at home makes it easier for me to perfect it very easily.

Ever since I heard about this mango kesari, I would like to  give it a try, but when it comes to fresh mango, I hardly have any self control to not eat the mangoes. Many times, I had bought the mangoes for trying out some sweet/dessert, but ended up eating as it is :-) 

So this time, I thought of making the mango kesari using mango pulp that's available in the can. To my surprise, the kesari turned out  so good and kept on licking the spoon :-) . Moreover, to make this kesari, you no need to wait for mango season, the readymade mango pulp works as good as fresh ones for this kesari.
