Rava ladoo is one of the easiest sweets which can be prepared quick at home. It is also one among the famous Diwali sweets prepared in India.
Iam a person who loves to eat sweets and these rava ladoo are my favourite from childhood. My mom makes it often at home. Infact I used to sit next to her when she is rolling it into balls and ask for one. I just love these ladoos❤ My son loves them the same way now!!
Rava ladoo or sooji ladoo are the ladoos made out of roasted rava/semolina, sugar, ghee. These are the main ingredients and coconut, nuts can be used to increase it’s taste. Anything rolled to round in shape is called as ladoo in India.
For making these ladoos, we are going to roast rava by stirring it continuously in ghee. Semolina burns easily when it is hot, so stirring it continuously in medium flame is more important. It is done when you get rich aroma from rava/semolina and it turns color slightly.
We had to add sugar, roasted nuts, roasted coconut and make it into balls by adding milk as needed. It is that simple to make!! It tastes extremely delicious and the sugar melts in your mouth😊
