Rava Laddu

Cooking Time : 30 mins

My Grandma used to prepare this delicious laddu often. I got the recipe from her and prepared the same. The Combination of Roasted Rava, Cashewnuts, Raisins mixed with sugar gives the exotic taste ever. This is one of the best sweet to prepare for festivals.

Rava                 - 1 cup
Sugar                -  1/2 cup
Cashewnuts       - 8
Raisins              - 10
Ghee                 - 4 tbsp
Warm Milk        - 1/2 cup
Grated Cocunut  - 1/4 cup

STEPS:

  1. In a pan, heat 2 tbsp Ghee and fry Rava till it becomes light brown and keep aside in a big bowl.
  2. In the same pan, heat 1 tbsp Ghee and add grated coconut and fry till it becomes light brown color and add to Rava.
  3. In the same pan, heat 1 tbsp Ghee and roast cashewnuts and raisins and mix with Rava mixture.
  4. Grind the sugar in the mixer and mix with the Rava mixture.
  5. Add warm milk little by little to the Rava mixture till it binds and make round balls. Repeat the same step to the rest of the mixture.
