I should thank Steve jobs for this recipe :) ...surprised to here this ah!!?? yeah... auto correct in my ipad took me to this wonderful middle east version of  Indian Kesari.. that to baked :)
Anyway that's a story that proved me that anything that happens in life is for some good ... I happened to come across this video in youtube .I tried this immediately and we loved it it was different but... very much similar to soth indian Kesari.
As usual i tried to make it to our taste ... meaning less sugar and elaichi instead for rose water and also jaggery syrup instead of sugar syrup.
so here is what i did....measurements are approximate but the outcome was very good in fact i loved this colour better than the video...guess the photo proves this :). plz refer to the video link given above for original measurement.
INGREDIENTS:

Semolina-1cup
Sugar-3/4 cup
Baking soda-1tsp
Melted butter-4 tbs
Cardamom -2(powdered)this is optional. the recipe in the video did not have this.
Curds/yogurt-3/4 cup(home made thick yogurt)

For syrup:
Jaggery cube-1(powdered)
Water-1cup
Lemon juice-2tsp
Cardamom powder-pinch
Blanched Almond- few to garnish

METHOD:

  1. Pre heat oven to 350 C
  2. Grease  a tray and keep aside
  3. Boil water in a pan and add sugar/jaggery and bring it to syrup consistency(does not have to come to sting consistency).Add cardamom and lemon juice and keep aside 
  4. Mean while mix semolina, baking soda cardamom powder(optional) and sugar well.Add curds and melted butter mix well. pour this in the greased tray and bake it for approximately 30 min.(i did not not the time. just took it out as it turned golden brown and also the aroma  was good and tooth pick came clean when i tested .oops .. Forgot to mention.
    Remove from oven and pour the syrup over it( according to the taste. . I actually poured about 3 tsp.
