Rava laddoo

Preperation time: 15 min | Cooking time: 25 min

My childhood memories during festival times like deepavali, pongal, ganesha chaturti etc are still very clear in my mind. We were living in a neighbourhood that was predominantly occupied by tamilians. When they celebrate their festivals we used to be a part of them. My grandmother used to make sweets for us during these times. This is one among them. I make this very often since it is one of my kids favourites.

Rava (semolina)-2cups
Cashew nuts
Cardamom powder-1tsp

Fry the cashews and raisins in ghee and keep it aside.
Roast the rava in the remaining ghee until it turns colour slightly. Add sugar and mix well. You can powder the sugar if the granules are too big. Now add the cardamom powder, cashew nuts and raisins and mix well. Sprinkle warm milk to this mixture, smear ghee over your palms and squeeze a handful between your fingers and palm to form small balls.

Note: You can store the laddoos for about 2 to 3 days in a cool dry place.
