Tutti Frutti Kesari

tutti frutti kesari,,,

Tutti Frutti Kesari is one of my favorite Kesari that I love to prepare when I have guests.These Tutti frutti are raw papaya pieces cooked in sugar syrup then mixed with desired food colors.They add so much richness to the food and are widely used in making cakes,cookies and breads.
The addition of Tutti Frutti can make even a simple recipe like kesari so attractive,colorful and tempting.Thus making it perfect for any special oaccsion or celebration.

switch off the stove when it reaches this consistency

Serve the Tutti Frutti kesari hot and have a wonderful day.
