Rava Laddu


 

Rava laddu are simple and quick sweet treats made with semolina, coconut and sugar. Rava laddu is a common sweet dish made during Diwali. These laddus are ready in no time and are great for quick hunger pangs.

I use fine semolina to make these laddus. I fry dry fruits, coconut and semolina in ghee until it is aromatic. I add sugar and bring it all together with some water. I then shape them into laddus are they are ready.

Hope you make and enjoy these delicious little bites!

 

 

Ingredients:

Fine semolina (rava) – 1 cup
Coconut – ¾ cup
Sugar – ½ cup
Cardamom powder – 1 tsp
Cashew a handful
Raisins a handful

Warm water – ¼ – ½ cup

Method:

  1. Heat ghee in a fry pan or kadhai. Fry the cashew until golden
  2. Add raisins and fry until they puff up slightly. Not add coconut and fry for 1-2 minutes
  3. Add semolina and fry on medium flame until it is aromatic and light golden
  4. Add sugar and cardamom powder. Mix well on low flame until the sugar melts completely
  5. Turn off the flame and slowly add warm water until the whole mixture comes together and binds well – see image below (don’t add all the water in one go. Add ¼ cup first and mix well.
  6. Add more water only if needed)
  7. Transfer to a plate and let it cool for some time
  8. While the mixture is still warn. Take a small amount of it and form round ball shape
  9. Shape all the laddus and let it dry for an hour
