Rava laddu is a simple sweet recipe. What we are writing is Instant Rava laddu that is easier to make.
Preparation time: 20-25 mins
Semolina (Sooji/Rava) 1 glass
Sugar ¾ glass
Fresh coconut 1/4th glass
Crushed cardamom 1tsp
Milk (paalu) 1cup
Roast semolina in a drop of ghee till light creamish brown.
Add sugar and keep stirring till the sugar and semolina mix well into fine powder. Set aside to cool.
In a separate pan, ghee-fry cashews and raisins and add to the semolina-sugar mixture. Add crushed cardamom.
Add fresh and grated coconut.
Once the semolina mixture has reached room temperature, around 5-10 mins later, add a few spoons of milk to a portion of the mix, take lumps of this portion and roll into laddus by squeezing in between the fist and making average sized balls. Continue the process till all the laddus are done.
For the proportions mentioned above around 20 laddus can be made. Instant rava laddu is an easy sweet and can be stored for around 2-3 days only, because of the milk content. Enjoy the 3 days of Deepavali with the yummy rava laddus and colorful diyas.
