Rava Laddo

This is the recipe of my sweetest grandma who is an excellent cook and this is the most frequently wanted and made sweet in my house which I learnt to master it from her. This is very easy to make in less than 20 minutes .


White Rava (Sooji ) : One cup
Cashew nuts : broken a handful
Raisins: Handful
Almonds and pistachios Crused handful (Optional)
Hot Milk : 1/4 cup
Sugar : 3/4 cup
Cardamon Powder : 1/4 teaspoon
Fresh coconut Grated : 1/4 cup
Ghee : 1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons


1. In a kadai add ghee when hot add cashew nuts, raisins and other nuts you prefer and once light brown add the fresh coconut and fry in very slow heat for 5 minutes and then add the rava and roast it in very slow fire for 7 minutes  and be careful not to brown the rava and once the rava is roasted, add sugar and mix well for 5 minutes in slow fire , add cardamon powder and then add the milk and mix well and immediately switch off from fire .

2. Start making ladoos when warm itself, if you feel too dry to make ladoos add little milk, grease hands with ghee and make the ladoos in the sizes you wish.

Note: if you wish you can add a pinch of food colour of your choice to make it more colourful and add it in little water or milk and add to the mixture while mixing on heat.
