Rava laddoo for Indian Cooking Challenge

It has been raining rava laddus in the blogosphere today!! Yeah, it is the first creation in the Indian Cooking Challenge initiated by Valli! I am very excited to take up this challenge and try out many authentic Indian dishes. The first challenge started out with this Rava Laddoo.. I havent made this earlier and this is my first time trying it out. It was quiet simple and tasted great. We loved every bite with a hint of raisins and cashews.

Coming on to the recipe given..

Ingredients

Rava / Semolina - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 25 gms
Milk - 25 ml
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Cashew nuts - 10 whole nuts
Raisins - 10 nos
Grated fresh coconut - 25 gms

Directions

Heat 2 teaspoons of ghee in a kadai and fry the raisins and cashews until they turn golden brown and the raisins plump up. Set them aside. In the same pan, roast the grated coconut for about two minutes and set it aside.

Then add the remaining ghee and add the semolina/rava. Roast on low heat until it gives out a nice aroma. Take care it doesnt burn.

In a bowl, take all the roasted ingredients along with sugar and mix well. Microwave milk for about 30 seconds or heat on stove top until it turns warm. Add milk little by little to the rava mixture. Make balls immediately while warm. When it cools down, it is difficult to make balls.

Store in an airtight container. Since it contains milk it is best to consume it within 4 to 5 days. 

Isn't it simple!!
