This rava laddu was in my to do list since last year. Last year I have tried with sugar syrup and I end up with rock hard ladoo. I must have been messed up with syrup, I guess.

So this time I came across to Rathai’s recipe that calls for condensed milk and I immediately noted down and tried. The end result was too good, beyond my expectation.

Here I have added little dry coconut too, but that is optional. Many times I do make rava laddu with fresh coconut as well.

The texture of the laddu is soft and almost melt in your mouth kind. Do give it a try.

15) Start mixing till it comes together like a dough. If it looks dry you may add little water at a time and mix. You may not need to add any water, it depends on the quality of sooji. Some types of sooji absorbs more liquid while some less. I have not added any water.

16) Let this mixture become warm and cool to touch. Then grease your palm with ghee and start shaping them into ladoos.

Let the laddo set for some time and let it cool completely, then serve.

This tastes best the day it is made. After couple of days it may starts to harden up more.

Serving suggestion: Enjoy rava laddu any time of the day or serve as a sweet along with your meal. It is usually made during festivals like diwali, bhai dooj. During the Ganesh Chaturthi festival, it is offered to Lord Ganesha as a prasad and then served to devotees.
