Hello Sweeties!!!! Shravan has started and with it has started the number of festivities that it brings with it. This is a very auspicious month in the Hindu calendar as it brings with it a fair number of festivals starting with Nag Panchami, Rakhi/narali pournima and janmashtami. Mondays and Fridays in this month are special for fasting and so on.
On the auspicious day of Rakhi I made these rava ladoos. I had to make something fast and with coconut. Rava Ladoos are usually made with the sugar syrup; one string pak as we call it in Marathi. Its extremely tricky to get the syrup right and am yet to master it, so I kind of don't trend that path now. This recipe is the easy way out in making the rava ladoo and is equally tasty.
Makes 18-19 medium ladoos
Time Taken- 30 mins
You will need;
1 Cups Fine Rava/Sooji/Semolina
1 Cup Fresh shredded Coconut
3/4th cup Sugar
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 Cup Ghee
1/2 Cup Raisins
1tsp Elaichi/ Green Cardamom powder
In a pan, heat the ghee and add the Sooji/Rava. Roast well till the sooji turn pinkish in color. Then add in the fresh coconut.. and roast for 5 more mins. Mix Sugar with sooji mixture, Add milk and elaichi powder, raisins and let cool for about 20 mins. When the mixture cools, grease your palms with some ghee and roll into ladoos. These were gone in less time it took me to make them.
