This is the simplest laddoos of all. No deep frying or making sugar syrup…ready in less than half an hour!! Addition of coconut makes it more tasty.
Rava Laddoo /Semolina Balls
1 ½ cups fine rava/semolina
½ cup coconut grated (fresh)
½ – ¾ cup sugar
1 tsp cardamom powder
½ cup milk (will need less)
Few cashewnuts and raisins (optional)
Roast coconut on low flame till it becomes dry but not brown.
Roast rava till light golden brown.
Add coconut to rava and mix.
Add sugar and cardamom powder and mix well.
Take off fire and let it cool a bit.
If you are using cashewnuts and raisin, fry in a tsp of butter/ghee and add to rava.
Sprinkle little bit of milk on little rava mixture and try to form balls.
Initially, the balls might not form, but soon it will. Use more milk as required but keep it to a minimum. Don’t pour milk on the whole rava…..go little by little.
Keep a cashewnut and raisin on each laddoo.
Store in refrigerator.
Can be made without coconut also.
