Rava Kesari - 7 Day Blogging marathon with sweet start.

                  
                                This is my First marathon, I am participating after starting my blog, I am really excited to to be in Srivalli's 7- day marathon!! where she has hosting the marathon with 7 lovely themes for 7 days. Being in final trimester, I found very difficult to join in one month marathon, but Srivalli 's 7 days marathon boosted my energy level to be along  with 25 fellow bloggers. Where Each participant can choose 7 themes for seven days or one theme for all 7 days. I have chosen special theme that where I going to present 7 different recipe based on the seven themes  for 7 days. For sure it gonna to be real virtual treat for all of us.
                    I want my DAY 1 Marathon should start with sweet suprises to all of my fellow bloggers & to my readers. So I decided to present simple and yummy recipe "Rava Kesari" which will be easiest form of sweet & can be done in few minutes with fewer ingredients.
                   When ever, I think of rava kesari, my mind & my taste bud directly drives to Saravana bavan  Rava kesari ( Sorry for making all of you to drool & reminding it). So I started to do this in my home with same colour & texture along with awesome taste. So try this with same measurement & explore new taste.

Meanwhile don't forget to check my fellow bloggers who also run along with me with delicious recipes...
