How to Make Revadi / Revari - Recipe on FirstCry Parenting

Revadi / Revari

Scrumptious, comforting and yes… Healthy! Revari forms an important part of the winter cuisine. This wonderful recipe combines the crunchiness of Til and the rich sweetness of Jaggery. The reason why it forms a winter staple is that til, both, black and white variety and Jaggery, are known to generate heat in the body after digestion, which eventually helps in combating the cold weather. So this Sankranti, bid adieu to the fattening creamy soups and other cheesy junk to keep yourself warm, and say hello to the old school ’til and gud’.
