Anu's Kitchen Laddu varieties Rava Recipes Sweets

Rava Laddu | Ravaa che Laddoo

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 Laddu | Rave che Laddoo
Rava Laddu | Rave che Laddoo


Rava (semolina) : 1 cup
Sugar: 1 cup
Elachi (cardamom) powder: 1 tsp
Cashwes: few
Ghee: 1/4 cup
Hot Milk (to make laddoos): 1/2 cup

Preparation Method:

  • 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!

Anu, veruppethunadukku sorry.. 🙂 We live in Vancouver, Canada… Sure you are welcome here any time dear!! 😀 In fact I encourage you to make a visit in Spring/Summer time… You’ll have a wonderful time! 🙂

Pooja thanks a lot
Priya, hey sorry yellam venam pa… Oh wow. We visited Niagara (from canadian side) in last spring. We stayed at our relatives place in London (a small town in Canada). We thoroughly enjoyed the climate and serene place. Vancouver ku trip adikalam pole… 😀

vaah vaah looks wonderful!

but, somebody has removed cashews from laddoos -only one piece is seen 🙁

today i ate rava laddoo in the evening 🙂 – these too look similar – so must be very very tasty

wow…yummy rava ladoos…hey anu, gotta award for in my blog da..collect it…chkout my 250th post for ur award dear…

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.. 🙂

hi anu

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

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 :mrgreen:


I also tired your rava laddu recipe and the laddus came out perfect! Thanks for sharing easy recipes with basic ingredients.
