Rava Laddu

         Rava base sweets are always easy to make with less time and preparation.   And laddu and kesari  are quite popular in most South Indian functions.  Every Indian family has it own unique way to prepare these ladoos.. Some prefer to use whole roasted rava with out grinding which gives more grainy texture and others use to grind rosted rava to fine powder and make laddos.. In our family we use to prepare in both ways depends on the request of our family members. And today I going to share ground version which I like it personally..Try this simple sweet for coming festivals and suprise your family and friends... Now let see the recipe...

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 15 ~ 20 minutes
Serves:  24 ladoos

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups Rava
1 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup ghee
2 ~ 3 whole cardamom
3 tbsp whole cashews, broken into pieces
2 ~ 3 tbsp milk

Rava Laddu

Method:
1. Heat 2 tbsp ghee in a wok or kadai and roast rava till it slightly changes it colour. Stir continuously to avoid burning.

2. Transfer roasted rava to the plate and allow it to cool to room temperature. Then grind it in to fine powder. Consistency of powdered rava will be slightly course to touch.



3. Meantime powder sugar and cardamom in a mixer to fine.
4. In wide plate or bowl, mix both rava and sugar powder together. Make a well in the centre and keep it aside.
5. Heat 1 tbsp of ghee and roast the cashews. Set aside.  ( I added entire ghee and fried cashews).



Mix cashwes and rava, sugar mixture

6. Add remaining ghee and heat till it reaches the smoking point. Remove from the heat and pour it in the centre of rava sugar mixture.



7. Now comes the tricky part, Using a spatula or with your hands, quickly mix the mixture
8. Sprinkle little milk over the mixture and roll it into small balls. Allow the ladoos to cool. Store it in a air tight container.

Note:

* You can avoid milk and add extra ghee to the mixture to a make ladoos. 
* Once mixture become cool, you will not able to roll it in to ladoos so roll the mixture when it is hot in to rough balls and then again roll each balls gently between your palms to get smooth and perfect round shape ladoos.
* Rolling should be very gentle or you will break your ladoos.
* You can mix roasted rava directly to a sugar powder without grinding to make ladoos.
