The time varies depending upon the Microwave setting. So the time varies as per your settings. I would recommend always starting with 30 seconds of cooking and cook more if required.
The final mix might look semi-solid, but as it cools down the kesari thickens.
My mango puree was super sweet, so went with only 2 tbsps of sugar. Adjust according to your taste preference.
The mango essence is entirely optional.
If you want to prepare plain kesari, skip the mango puree and add 1 cup of water instead of a ¾ cup and add kesari powder and your favorite fruit essence for the color and flavor.
Or you can add ¼ cup of non-dairy milk like almond milk or cashew milk instead of mango puree.
Serve this kesari warm, if it's cooled down, add a little water or any non-dairy milk and microwave again for 30 to 35 seconds before serving.
