Blue berry Rawa Kesari

A very simple and common preparation enhanced by these lovely blue berries giving the dish a nice color and flavor...

1/2 cup rawa
1/2 cup sugar
little less than 1/2 cup blueberries
few broken cashewnuts for garnish
1/8th tsp of elaichi powder
1/4 cup of ghee

Roast the rawa in about 2 tsp of ghee till you get the aroma.  In the meanwhile, heat up about 2 cups of water in the microwave.  Slowly add this hot water to the rawa keeping the flame at low.  Turn up the heat and cook the rawa nicely without any lumps.  Once this is done, add the sugar, elaichi powder and half of the ghee.  Let this cook until the sugar is melted completely.  Again, microwave the blueberries quickly to soften them and add this to the rawa cooking in the sugar.  Add the rest of the ghee and cook until it comes together and does not remain sticky to the touch. 

Garnish with some cashews roasted in ghee...
