Laddu With Greate Coconut


1 cup Semolina/Rava
1/2 cup Shredded Coconut
2/3 cup Sugar
2 Tbsp Ghee
1 Tsp Cardamom powder
2-3 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp Cashew nuts and Raisins mixed


Heat 1 big Tbsp of ghee in a pot/Kadai/Pan, add cashew and raisins and fry till raisins are puffed up and cashew changes color slightly. Drain and remove. Set aside
Now add Grated Coconut and roast for a minute or two and then add 1/2 tbsp more ghee and add the rava to roast it thoroughly.
Keep stirring continually for 5 - 7 minutes coating the rava with ghee and mixing it with coconut. Add the cardamom powder and mix well.
Add the sugar and keep stirring till the sugar is almost dissolved.
Add the roasted cashew and raisins.
Now add 2 Tbsps of milk and mix thoroughly as the rava tends to thicken up.
Remove from heat and spread on a greased plate.
With the remaining 1/2 Tbsp of ghee keep greasing the fingers and quickly make ladoos of small lemon size.
You can add 1 or 2 tsps of milk while making laddus if the rava mixtures tends to become dry. This will keep the rava moist so that the laddus will get retain the shape and can be easily made.
Usually for one cup of rava 10 -12 laddus can be made.
Store in a air tight container for up to a week.
