Rava laddoo(Sooji laddoo)

Have been missing the traditional “laddoo” for some time now. I thought, ” why not have it today as a tea-time snack.Thats how it started today and this is how I prepared this.

Heat 2 tspns of ghee in a kadai. Add the dry fruits(almonds, pista,raisins, cashewnuts, anything you want). Allow them to be roasted for a while. Keeping the stove on low flame, add 1 cup grated coconut. Fry for 2 minutes till it changes color. Now, add 1 cup rava(sooji) and roast it well for 10 mins stirring continuously so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan. When you smell the aroma of rava, add 1/2 cup sugar and fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Then switch off the flame. Add half a cup water little at a time and mix well. It should not become too watery nor too thick. So add little by little.Now transfer the mixture into a plate and start making laddoos. It will be hot, maybe too hot,for some. But hold your breath and think of the taste once you finish it. Sprinkle drops of water if the heat is unbearable and hten make laddoos. Allow it to cool for 2 hours .

Laddos are ready.

Milk enhances the taste,but you may not be able to store the laddoos for many days. But you may add 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 water, if you want a different flavor.
I did not add milk .I didn’t even add nuts to the mixture.As I am going to consume them this evening, it should not be a problem .Yippe yay, laddoos with tea today…:)

Rava laddoos are possible with just rava, sugar, ghee and water.:)
