Rava Ladoo


Got this recipe along with the photo from my friend Lavanya ...Today being the third day in blogging marathon , I chose the sweets category ... thanks a lot Lavanya ,  u saved my day ...

do check out our fellow bloggers recipes , who are taking part in the blogging marathon ....


Ingredients :
  • Rava/Sooji - 1cup
  • Sugar - 1/4 cup
  • Milk - 1/2 cup
  • Grated  coconut - 1/4 cup
  • Cashews - 5-10 (according to your love for cashew)
  • Raisins - hand full
  • Ghee - 2tbsp

Procedure:

For the entire procedure keep you stove in medium flame. In a pan roast the cashews and Raisins with ghee until they become golden brown. Add the grated coconut and fry till you smell the coconut and ghee (not more than 1-2mins) Now add the rava/sooji and keep tossing until the rava turns slightly brown.Add the sugar and keep stirring until the rava,sugar and coconut along with the cashew and raisins mix well. Its now time to add the milk. The caramelized sugar would have already helped the ingredients to mix well. So add milk appropriately so the mix is in a consistency of making ladoos.
Now switch off your stove and allow the mixture to cool.  At medium heat, start making the ladoos.
Never let the mixture to cool down completely, then its not possible to make ladoos.

    PS: Consistency of making ladoos means, when u take a little amount of the mixture and try to make a ball, it should not fall apart.

    Update from Lavanya :(few had doubt with the Rava and Sugar ratio  )

    Its definitely 1/4cup of sugar and 1 cup of Rava. This proportion gave a correct sweet taste. @ suma, The milk helps to give a kind of wet texture to mixture which will help you to make ladoos. otherwise the mixture will fall apart. Also, milk gives an extra flavor.

    1. I have never seen any recipe which has quarter proportion of sugar for 1 proportion of rava. Is it a typo or you make it so bland? Good one.
