Rava Laddoo~~Indian Cooking Challenge

Life is full of challenges rite na!!!! cooking challenges makes me always happy and i give up rarely cooking challenges..If the cooking challenges goes for Indian dishes who will leave this great opportunity, i immediately want to join along my other fellow bloggers to Srivalli's Indian Cooking Challenge.. And this month challenge was a trail challenge and Srivalli choosed Rava Laddoo..Usually we Tamilians prepare rava laddoo by grinding pan roasted rava and sugar with hot ghee, but Srivalli's rava laddoo was completely different from wat we do, using milk is very new to me and grated coconut too...Rava laddoo always goes for few ingredients also they are really very easy, needless to say this rava laddoo is also very easy and i didnt find much difference from mine...we loved it...Voila from this month onwards we are going to enjoy making out delicious indian dishes for this indian cooking challenge and am eagerly waiting for further challenges to enjoy preparing and having, since some of our indian dishes are yet to try in my to do list and this challenge gonna be a wonderful opportunity for peoples like me to enjoy preparing many different indian dishes...


Rava / Semolina - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 25 gms
Milk - 25 ml
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Cashew nuts - 10 whole nuts
Raisins - 10 nos
Grated fresh coconut - 25 gms

Heat 2 tsp of ghee in a kadai. Once the ghee is hot enough, simmer the flame and roast cashew nuts and raisins. Once the raisins balloon up, remove. Then roast the grated coconut. Remove once done. Keep all these aside.

Add the remaining ghee and roast the Rava till its well roasted and aroma starts coming out.
In a bowl, take all the roasted Rava, Nuts, Coconut and add the Cardamom powder. Then add the sugar. Mix well.

Then slowly add the warm milk into the bowl. Check if you are able to gather as balls. When you find that milk added is enough to get you laddos, transfer it back to the kadai and cook in sim for 2 mins. Mix well and then cover it and let it rest for 2 mins. Then immediately make balls or laddoos.

Enjoy the delicious rava laddoooss!!!!
