Rava Laddu / Rava Ladoo and Diwali Wishes


Rava Laddu


It is Diwali time of the year again.....And I know, everyone is busy preparing all sorts of sweets n snacks to munch around and to share with friends...

Last week we had the Diwali celebrations by the Indian association and it was really a memorable one....It was good to see the Indian community increasing in number here...There were so many cultural programs for the entertainment and of course the Indian food at the end...

A short description on the festival can be found in my last year's post....So without much of talking , I am going directly to today's recipes......

First is a sweet item which will be followed by a snack item in my next post, hopefully by tomorrow...

Now, coming to today's recipe, ......this is a tempting sweet that I just cant say "No", inspite of the high calorie content..But for such festive occasions it is better to keep your eyes shut to CALORIE and think of working out a bit more afterwards......Right?

So here is the simple and easy recipe for a mouth-watering sweet....


Ingredients
  1. Rava / Sooji / Semolina - 2 cups
  2. Powdered sugar - 1 1/2 cup
  3. Ghee [ melted ] - 1 cup
  4. Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. Raisins n Cashews - a handful [ optional ]
  6. Milk - 2 Tbps
Preparation
  1. In a small pan, heat 1 tsp of ghee and roast the raisins and cashews and keep aside.
  2. In a large non stick pan , add 2 Tbsps of ghee and roast the rava on a medium heat, without getting it burnt. It takes about 10 mins.
  3. Switch of the heat and add powdered sugar,cardamom powder and the roasted raisins and cashews to this and mix well.
  4. Wait for a few minutes so that it is not too hot to be handled by hand.
  5. Now slowly add the remaining ghee and start making laddus [balls] out of it. Keep the milk aside to sprinkle in case the balls are not forming in shape.
  6. Wait for a few minutes to get it firmer and then you can start munching.

Enjoy this tasty treat to bring on the festive mood ...


Note: I could get about 25 laddus from the recipe.


My rava laddus are on the way for Lavi's Diwali snack event..

Wishing all my readers a very bright , colourful and safe Diwali ...
