Rava laddoo

2 Jan

Been a while since I made something new. I always like to eat something sweet at the end of a meal – not a lot.. but just a little bit. So instead of buying more chocolate, I decided to spend a bit of time making something new – Rava laddoos :).

Inspired from here – http://mariasmenu.com/desserts/rava-laddu

Its really quite simple:

– Roast the Rava for a while.

– Roast some coconut powder for a while… as much as you want really, a good measure is probably 1/4th the quantity of rava.

– Add some oil and roast the mixture of both for a while.

– Add some cardamom powder to it and mix well.

– Add sugar to it, a little less than 1/2 the amount of rava. Start off by adding even lesser, ideally, and then taste the mixture at the end. If you feel you need more… add some more.

– If you’d like to add some dry fruits, roast those lightly and add those to the mixture as well.

– Take all this off the stove and let it cool a bit.

– Start adding milk to it, but stop before it becomes too watery – it must be just thick enough so you can make balls of the mixture… that don’t crumble and fall apart.

– Make the balls, and keep all of the balls inside the fridge for a while, so it solidifies.

– That’s it .. have fun eating 🙂
