Making rava laddu recipe:
Heat the ghee in a pan on medium-low heat.
Once hot add cashews and fry with stirring constantly till they get light brown in color. Remove it to a plate.
In the same ghee, add raisin and fry till they get plump. Remove it to the same plate and keep it aside.
In the remaining ghee, add semolina and roast it with stirring continuously on LOW-MEDIUM heat for around 8-10 minutes.
In the beginning, you will find that rava is heavy and you will have to make some effort to stir it. Continue roasting till you get a nice aroma of sooji and it will get slight color change. Once roasted, you will find that rava is very light while stirring.
Now add desiccated coconut. Mix and roast for 1-2 minutes, you will get a nice toasted aroma of coconut.
Remove this mixture to a plate. Let it cool for 4-5 minutes.
Now add cardamom powder, fried cashews, raisins, and condensed milk.
Start mixing until it comes together like a dough.
Let this mixture become warm and cool to touch.
Then grease your palm with ghee and start shaping them into ladoos.
Let them set for some time and let it cool completely, then serve.
Roasting sooji properly is the key to making best-tasting rava laddu.
So always roast the sooji on low-medium heat with stirring constantly.
After adding condensed milk if the mixture looks dry and you’re not able to form ladoo then you can add little milk or water at a time and mix.
