Rava Laddu

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fine semolina
  • 1 3/4 cups shredded fresh coconut
  • 2 cups sugar (adjust the amount as per the sweetness of the sugar),
  • 1 cup water to make sugar syrup
  • 3/4 cup melted ghee (clarified butter),
  • cardamoms, almonds & raisins.

Method

  1. Roast semolina in ghee over medium heat. Keep roasting until its color changes to golden brown and it gives out aroma.
  2. Now add coconut to semolina and again roast for approx. 10 minutes. Add cardamom powder to it.
  3. Combine sugar and water in a thick bottomed pan. Heat it to achieve a syrup of one string consistency.
  4. As the syrup reaches one string consistency, add roasted rava and coconut mixture into it. Keep mixing for a minute or so.
  5. Turn the heat off and keep mixing the mixture after every half an hour.
  6. In about 2-3 hours, the mixture gets thick. Add nuts and raisins.
  7. Divide mixture into equal parts and shape them into balls of desired shape. Ladoos are ready to eat. Store them in an airtight container.
