Chocolate Semolina Pudding | Chocolate Kesari | Kids Chocolate Dessert

Chocolate Semolina Pudding/ Chocolate Kesari is one yum and quick dessert to make when you are craving for some quick and simple dessert to do for those moments you want an instant dessert for the sweet tooth. I have done this so many times as its R's favourite and it never seems to lose its charm with us ;-) Although my husband is not a great chocolate fan as I am, he still asks me to do this chocolate pudding. I picked this recipe from my dear friend Sangee's blog. Thanks Sangee for this wonderful dessert and now its our family favourite. 

Chocolate Semolina Pudding is more like Rava Kesari with a twist of adding cocoa powder with milk and vanilla essence. The result is a luscious dessert for those sweet moments, you can go one step ahead like I have done and make it with ghee which is totally worth it all.


Recipe Source ~ here
Serves ~ 2 generously
Prep & Cook time ~ 10 mins


White Semolina/ Rava - 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
Milk - 1 and 1/2 cup
Vanilla extract - 1-2 tsp
Sugar - 4 tbsp (Adjust according to sweet tooth)
Cocoa Powder - 2 tbsp
Chopped nuts (cashew, badam) - 2 tbsp
Ghee/ Oil - 2 tbsp (adjust according to liking)

  • In a pan heat 1 tbsp of ghee, roast the rava/ semolina in medium/low flame for around 4 minutes until the rava is nice a golden and you will have a nice aroma. Remove and spread rava on a plate.
  • In a small bowl add 3 tbsp of milk, to this add the vanilla extract and cocoa powder, mix until well combined, set aside
  • In the same pan add the milk and bring it to a boil. Now slowly add the roasted rava by sprinkling it on the hot milk and stirring using a spoon on the other hand, this helps to avoid lumps.
  • As the rava is cooking in the milk add the cocoa mixture and stir well, be quick else the rava will be thick and milk absorbed. Once the milk is fully absorbed by the rava add sugar and keep stirring till it is all melted and combined. The semolina will be like a thick mass and start separating from the pan.
  • Now add ghee and chopped nuts
Serve warm or chilled for a sweet moment

Cooks wisdom

- Make sure you roast rava as it gives a wonderful texture to this pudding
- Usually milk based kesari requires more sugar compared to kesari done with water. 
- I added vanilla extract you can also add cardamom powder
- You can alternately use melted chocolate to make this kesari.
