Rava Laddoo


Navarathri Golu is one of my favorite Indian festivals where we get to see lots and lots of beautiful dolls. This year I got some help from my children cleaning up the dolls, setting kolu padi, giving manjal kumkumam to friends etc. Yesterday for Neivedyam I prepared Rava laddoo. It is a traditional Indian sweet made from semolina/rava  and sugar and bound together with ghee to form small balls.Everyone make this ladoo in different version. I prepared this laddoo in different way and it just melts in your mouth. Here is my version of this recipe!
 Glad to share here my Navarathri Golu photo:)

Rava – 1 cup
Powdered Sugar –1 cup (increase as per your sweet buds)
Cardamom Powder–1 tsp
Ghee – 1/4 cup
Cashews – 10 nos
 Raisins – 10 nos
1.Dry roast the rava in a wide pan  till nice aroma arises. Make sure the color of rava doesn’t change.
2.Let it become warm and then grind it to a fine powder in your mixer Make sure there are no granules and sieve it.
3.Mix powdered sugar, rava and cardamom powder.
4.Break cashew into small pieces and fry in a tsp of ghee until golden brown.
5.Add the Melted  ghee little by little at a time and start mixing and cashew nut, raisins  to the ground rava powder and mix well.Stop the ghee when u are able to make a ball.
6.Take a small amount of mixture in your palm, Make small lemon size balls out of it and store in an air tight container.
