Rava/Sooji Ladoo (Instant) --Saraswathi Pooja Special

Happy Saraswathi pooja/Ayudha pooja to all my readers and my friends. I just made a simple ladoo for neivedyam and nothing fancy. Have fun and Njoy.

Rava/Semolina/Sooji -- 1cup
Coconut,shredded -- 1/2 cup
Copra thengai -- 1/4 cup, chopped to bits
Sugar -- 1 1/4 cups (add only 1 cup if u want it mild sweet)
Cashews -- 2 tbsp
Raisins -- 2 tbsp
Cardamom powder -- 1/8 tsp
Ghee -- 4 tbsp(melted)
Warm milk -- as needed (may be 2 tbsp)

Method :
  • Add a tsp of ghee and fry the cashews till it turns golden . Add the raisins @ this stage and fry until it puffs up.Add the copra thengai (if using) and fry as well.Gather the cashews ,co[ra thengai and the raisins in a small bowl.
  • Now in the same pan fry the coconut (if using fresh coconut) until it turns golden  on medium flame. This might take upto 3 to 4 minutes.Remove the coconut to the same bowl where u've already collected nuts,raisins and coconut pieces.
  • In the same pan roast the rava over low flame for 10 minutes ,mixing all the time,the colour would have changed from white to golden brown and have a nice aroma.
  • Transfer the roasted rava to the same bowl filled already with the roasted ingredients and immediately dump in the sugar and all of the remaining ghee and mix well using a spatula.
  • The sugar would start melting slightly cos of the hot roasted rava. If u may possible try to make a small ball out of it. If u can't get hold of it, add a tbsp of milk and try making a ball.U may add another tbsp of milk if u want .At first, the ladoo might seem loose while making it but don panic it will turn to a firm ball after few minutes.

  • Store the ladoo in a air tight container box.
  • Adding fresh coconut  and milk reduces the shelf life but no need to worry if u add copra thengai and skipped adding milk,it will lasts long for a week.
  • Do not add more than 2 tbsp of milk.
