Rava Ladoo - Sooji(Semolina) Ke Ladoo

Sooji ke Ladoo / Rava Ladoo
The countdown to Christmas begins. Our Christmas tree is all set up and the kids are again eagerly waiting for their dear Santa. Each day my younger one who is four keeps looking at the calendar and keeps track of the date.

This year for Christmas I decided to make some traditional Indian sweets which are prepared during Diwali as well as for Christmas. If you were to ask a foodie like me I just may need an excuse to make these, be it Christmas or Diwali.  

These are quick and easy to make with just five ingredients and taste awesome. These also make as an excellent gift for Christmas.

Ingredients :
  • 1 cup Rava/Sooji /Semolina
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter / ghee
  • 1/4 cup raisins *
  • 1/4 cup cashews *
* Fry raisins and cashews in about 1 tbsp ghee/unsalted butter 

Preparation : Heat a thick bottomed pan / Kadhai. On medium  flame dry roast the Rava/sooji  for about 5-7 minutes. Keep stirring continuously so that the Rava does not get burnt. Take it off the heat and let it cool. Now in a grinder, grind the roasted rava and sugar into a really fine powdered consistency. To this add the fried cashews and raisins. Warm the ghee/unsalted butter and add to the mix. Start making the ladoos immediately.Take a little of the mixture into your hands and form them into small balls. This recipe makes 12 -14 ladoos.

Just in case... 
The ladoo mix gets too dry add a little ghee/butter and continue making the ladoos. Some people do add a little warm milk to the mix . This I do agree makes it much easier to make the ladoos, but the shelf life is not much - just about 3-4 days.

Happy Holidays. Enjoy !!!
