Nei Rava Laddoo

By this time I think everyone would have read about my huss's love for ghee and how I am a miser in adding ghee. At times I feel sorry for him, for denying him his desired level of ghee. He has been asking me to make rava laddoos for a long time and he was so specific that he needed ghee to be added as the bonding agent. :(

I have been postponing this for a long time but I felt he deserved a treat as he takes care of most of the household chores these days. So finally made them for Vishu and I knew that he loved it the instant the laddoo hit his mouth by his wide grin.

~*What U Need*~
Rava/Semolina - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Cashew-nuts & Raisins - few
Ghee

How I Made it:
Heat a skillet, add ghee and toast the cashew-nuts and raisins. In the same pan, add rava and fry it until a nice aroma comes. Remove from pan and allow it to cool. Grind the rava and sugar to a smooth powder using a blender.
In a large bowl , add the ground powder, cashew-nuts-raisins-ghee mixture and cardamom powder. Melt ghee and add little by little checking if you can make balls out of it. When the desired consistency is reached, take a small portion of the mixture and press it between your palms and make laddoos.

Delicious rava laddoos ready... Take a sniff and you will love them.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
