Rava Laddu

Krishna Jayanthi or Janmashtami is celebrated all over India and by Indians all across the world. On this day, several delicacies were home cooked and served to Lord Krishna. Even if you do not have all the time to prepare the special sweets and savories by yourself, you can still worship Lord Krishna by offering butter, curd and a handful of flattened rice(poha); Lord Krishna happily blesses us with all the wellness and goodness in this life.

I made rava(semolina) laddu, poha sweet pongal, kai murruku/chakli(besan flour fritters) for this year's Krishna Jayanthi and got the blessings of Krishna :) I'm so very happy to share the rava laddu recipe with you all.


1 cup rava/sooji/semolina
1/4 cup grated coconut
1 tsp powdered cardamom
3/4 cup of sugar
4-5 tbsp warm milk
10 cashews
10 raisins
4 tbsp ghee

How to make Rava Laddu:

1. In a sauce pan, add a tbsp of ghee and roast the cashews till they turn light brown. Transfer it to a large mixing bowl.

2. To the same sauce pan, add a tbsp of ghee and roast the raisins till they become plump. Transfer it to the mixing bowl.

3. Then add a tbsp of ghee to the pan and roast the grated coconut for 2-3 minutes. No need to brown the coconut. Transfer it to the bowl.

4. Add a tbsp of ghee and add rawa/sooji/semolina to the sauce pan. Roast it till it starts to turn light brown. Immediately switch off the flame and add the roasted rava to the mixing bowl.

5. Now, add sugar and cardamom powder to the mixing bowl and whisk together all the contents thoroughly.

Tip: You can reduce or increase the amount of sugar as per your preference for sweetness. You can also use brown sugar instead of white sugar, I have used organic brown sugar today.

6. Warm the milk slightly, no need to boil it. Add the warm milk little by little and knead the dough well.

7. Make small round shapes out of the dough and place it carefully on a parchment paper or a plate. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes.

Tip: You can apply little ghee to your fingers while making the laddoos.

8. Serve the rava laddus to your family and guests who visit you in no time. This recipe is an easy to go recipe, which needs just 10 minutes to prepare.
