  • 1 cup rava
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 10 cashew nuts
  • 15 raisins
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1/4 cup milk


Step 1

Heat 2 tsp of ghee and roast rava over low flame till rava turns golden brown and you get a nice aroma of roasted rava.

Step 2

Let the rava cool on a plate and then grind it to a coarse powder in a mixer. Grinding the rava to a fine powder will not render the desired texture.

Step 3

Following the rava, grind sugar into a fine powder.

Step 4

To the ground rava, add the ground sugar and cardamom powder. Mix the three well.

Step 5

Now, break the cashew nuts to smaller pieces and fry them along with raisins in ghee and add them to the rava-sugar-cardamom powder mix.

Step 6

Now add milk to the above mixture little by little. Cup the mixture in your palm and check if it holds. If it does, make laddoos and place them on a plate to cool. Add more milk till the mixture holds.

Step 7

Check if the laddoos have hardened and serve.
