  • 1 ½ tablespoons Ghee (Clarified butter)
  • 8-10 Cashew nuts broken
  • 1 tablespoon Raisins
  • 1 ½ cups Sooji (rava or semolina)
  • 3 tablespoons Desiccated coconut
  • ½ teaspoon Green cardamom seeds powder
  • ½ can or 7 oz or 200 grams or ½ cup+2 tablespoons Sweetened condensed milk


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.
