Ladoos and Burfis are the popular sweets prepared during the Diwali festival where an array of ladoos can be seen at most of the houses or sweet stalls like the rava ladoo, boondi ladoo, til ladoo, motichoor ladoo, coconut ladoo etc.Most of these ladoos are prepared graciously with nice aromatic home made ghee (clarified butter) which makes the ladoos scrumptious.When eaten they give a nice sweetness and nutty flavor with the aroma of the roasted semolina (rava) and cardamom flaring into your tastebuds.
Preparing the Rava ladoo is very simple and easy but every ingredient should be cooked on a very slow flame with lots of patience to get the perfect rava ladoo. Heat little ghee in a kadai or pan, once the ghee is a little hot, simmer the flame and roast chironji, cashew nuts and raisins till they slightly change their color then add fresh grated coconut and fry them together.
Add the semolina (rava) and stir continuously till the rava releases a nice aroma all over the house. Add sugar and cardamom powder, mix and switch off the flame and add milk and mix  stirring continuously and remove it onto a plate. When slightly warm gather some mixture and form to a ball (ladoo shape). In this variation you need to stir the mixture continuously and get it to the right consistency.
Another simple variation of preparing is that you can fry the ingredients separately one after the other and later mix them together and form the ladoos.  Note that while roasting the semolina make sure the flame in simmered completely or else there are chances for the rava to get burnt.Add just the required amount of milk to combine all the ingredients well to form the balls (ladoos). The sweetness can be either be more or less as per your taste and choice. If you are adding milk then its best to consume within 5 days of making them or else they would get spoilt.
If you are planning to keep them for longer period than you can add little water, but water would make the rava ladoos a little hard. I am sure by now your mouth must be really tempting to watch the making of the rava ladoos. Do click and add the step by step instructions at:
