Calories Per Serving 646
  • 6 cups fine Semolina Flour
  • 1/2 cup Ghee (Clarified Butter)
  • 1 cup hot Milk
  • 7 cups White Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground Cardamom
  • 1/3 cup Cashew Nuts
How to make Rava Laddoo:
  • Take a large skillet or frying pan and heat it over medium to high heat.
  • Add the semolina and toast it without oil or grease, till it begins to turn brown; stir it constantly.
  • Gradually, add in the sugar and cardamom while toasting until it turns light brown and fragrant; this will take about ten minutes or so.
  • Heat a small portion of the ghee in a smaller skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the cashews, and fry until they turn a light brown, which would take about five minutes.
  • Add the cashews to the semolina and finally add the remainder of the ghee.
  • Finally, slowly stir in the hot milk into the semolina until it is thick yet pliable enough to be rolled into balls. Remove from heat, and form palm-sized balls. Let cool and serve.
