  1. Dry roast the rava well.Make sure that u dont burn it.A nice aroma will come if its completely roasted.Keep aside.
  2. Take remaining ghee in a pan and fry the cashews and raisins and keep this also aside.
  3. In a heavy bottomed pan,Take required amount of water.(its in the ratio rava:sugar:water=1:2:3).Bring it to boil.Then add a pinch of salt and the food color and stir well.Then add in the roasted rava little by little and keep stirring.
