Rava Besan Ladoo Recipe | How to make rava besan laddu

This ladoo recipe is from the region of Maharashtra. People usually make it during the festival like diwali or ganesh chaturthi. As you know that ladoo is Lord Ganesha’s second most favorite food after the modak. This can be offered to god during the Ganpati festival.

The taste of it is similar to the besan ladoo but with some texture. That comes from the sooji. Here I have added cashews and raisins in the laddu. If you want to make it plain, you can skip it too.

This rava besan ladoo is soft and melt in your mouth kind.

The procedure of making it is very simple and you can’t go wrong with it. The beginners can make it without having fear of failing. This is much more easier version than the ladoo made with sugar syrup. In that one need to be more careful for one string consistency of the syrup to get the softer texture.

For this recipe, you must use the boora or tagar. It is easily available in India. Here I have used powdered sugar. It is also known as confectioner sugar or icing sugar. No, this is NOT regular sugar powdered into the grinder.

Keep them in single layer on the plate. Let it get firm up by resting it for at least an hour. After that you can store them in the container.
