I love sweets. Most of the posts in Anu’s kitchen would be a simple dessert/sweet 😀 Here am posting the next sweet recipe. A easy and jiffy sweet “Rava Laddu” (Its called ravaa che laddoo in Marathi, my mother tongue 🙂 ) There are various ways to prepare this. Here is a simple one.
Rava (semolina) : 1 cup
Sugar: 1 cup
Elachi (cardamom) powder: 1 tsp
Ghee: 1/4 cup
Hot Milk (to make laddoos): 1/2 cup
- Roast the rava till it turns slightly brownish in color.
- Allow it to cool.
- Fry the cashews in ghee.
- Add the fried cashews, sugar, elachi powder and ghee to the roasted rava.
- Add the milk little by little and make small balls out of the rava-sugar mixture
- Rava laddoo is ready to relish.
- Since we add milk, the laddoos should be finished off within 2 days.
- We can add coconut too, but I do not like the taste of coconut in this laddoo 🙂
- Some even powder the roasted rava and sugar and then make laddoos. Either way it tastes gud!
Share & Enjoy! -

Hi Anu, thanks for letting me know about you! Loved your blog.
adding coconut to laddu makes it more tasty.
visiting here prompted me make it again.. 🙂
Glad that my Rava laddoos tempted u to try again 🙂 Do keep visiting My Scrawls.
hi anu, thanks for stopping by. new to your blog and there’s so much to see.
the ladoo looks great , plz clear my doubt , shall i jus add the sugar with the roasted rava and then add the cardoman powder and cashewnuts
the reason im asking is how the sugar would dissolve,pz help me
Hi Vidhya, Glad that u liked the rava ladoo recipe 🙂
U can add the sugar as such or powder it. Both ways taste would be gud. Incase u add the sugar as such (not powdered) then u find sugar granules along with the rava. Since we add milk (little by little) while making ladoos sugar sticks with rava and we can shape them as ladoos.
If the sugar is powdered then we may not see the sugar granules in the ladoo
