Rava Laddu / Rava Ladoo

Hi Friends
Happy Krishna Jayanthi wishes!!!...
Along with that I am happy to share that I got my own domain, . Thanks for your support and encouragement, hope you will continue the same in the future also.
Because of my health issues I am unable to post for the past few weeks n Today felt better and back to Blogging :) 

Wanted to start with a sweet recipe, Rava Laddu. Rava Laddu is a simple and quick Indian sweet. And its one of the easiest neivedyam too. Yes, You can make this rava laddu within 15 minutes and offer to God as Prasadham. I am not much fond of this sweet but my kids n V love this a lot. This is my friend's recipe and I made this for the first time and it came out really good n tasted so delicious. Now off to the recipe...

  1. Rava/Sooji    1 cup
  2. Sugar   3/4 cup 
  3. Cashew nuts    1small fistful (roughly chopped)
  4. Raisins    1-2 tbsp
  5. Ghee/Clarified butter    4 tbsp
  6. Hot milk     4-5 tbsp
  7. Cardamom powder     a generous pinch

  • First heat 1tbsp ghee in a pan, and roast cashew nuts till golden brown and keep aside.
  • And add raisins and fry till it plump up and keep aside.
  • To the same pan, add another tbsp ghee and add rava and roast the rava in medium heat to light golden brown n till aroma comes.
  • After that add sugar and stir well for a minute and turn off the stove.
  • Then allow this to cool for a while and then blend it in a blender for few seconds or if u want blend it finely.
  • Now transfer the rava-sugar mixture to a wide plate/bowl then add cardamom powder, ghee roasted cashew nuts n raisins.
  • Mix well and add another 2tbsp hot ghee n mix well and add milk little by little and take about 2tbsp of mixture n start shaping it to round balls. 
  • Add hot milk or hot ghee while shaping them to laddus. 
  • Do repeat the same for all the mixture, with the above measurement u will get around 15 medium sized Rava laddu.
  • Leave the Laddu for 20-30 minutes to hold the shape and after that ready to relish or offer God!

Adding milk makes the laddu soft n delicious(if u don't like ghee then use only milk to shape them but use ghee to roast rava n nuts for nice flavor) but at the same time it reduces its shelf life. It remains good only for 3-4 days @ room temperature.
Use hot ghee alone to shape the laddu for 1 cup u will need about 1/4 cup ghee. This way you can store the rava laddu for a month, if handled n prepared properly.
Ghee Roasted shredded coconuts can also be added to the rava-sugar mixture.
I did not blend the rava finely since i like bit crispy.

Sending the recipe to Jagruti's Celebrate ~ Month of Shravan Event happening @ Spicy Treats.
