Rava Laddu

Rava laddu is one of my childhood favorites. It can also be made as a quick evening snack or as a prasadham. The ideal rava laddu needs to have the right amount of firmness, sweetness and coarseness.


1 cup of fine Rava/ Sooji
3/4 cup of powdered sugar
1/4 cup of ghee
2 tbsp of cashew nuts
2 tbsp of raisins
1 tsp of powdered cardamom
Warm milk(optional)


1. Heat 1 tbsp of ghee in a skillet and add cashew nuts. As they turn golden brown, add raisins. As they plump up, transfer to a plate.
2. Add rava to the pan and dry roast them till nice aroma comes. Switch off the flame and add sugar, roasted nuts and ghee. Mix them.
3. The mixture should be warm to make a small lemon sized balls. As the mix becomes dry add a tbsp of warm milk and continue making balls.

4. Rava laddu will be soft but eventually it becomes firm. Store them in the refrigerator.
