(Updated with new pics)
My MIL is an expert in making Rava ladoo.She makes it  different from the usual method. Just because of this variation my hubby loves this ladoo a lot. I’ve tried this for some occasions. Its a fool proof recipe. Never went wrong. Try this and let me know friends :) I am bad in shaping  the ladoos .So please bear with the irregular shapes;)

KITCHEN CLINIC
RAWA /SOOJI/SEMOLINA :
Semolina is a product of wheat milling that is created when the wheat kernels are processed using corrugated cast-iron rollers. During this phase of wheat milling, the bran, germ and endosperm are separated and the endosperm breaks into coarse grains. These coarse grains are called semolina and can be further processed to produce wheat flour or used as is in the production of many food products.
The most common types of semolina are farina and durum semolina. Farina is made from soft wheat kernels and is the main ingredient of the hot cereals Cream of Wheat and Malt-O-Meal. Durum semolina is produced from the hard red wheat berries (winter wheat) and is used primarily in the production of dry pasta. Products with a similar texture to semolina but made from different grains are occasionally referred to as semolina--corn semolina or rice semolina.

Benefits



  • Pasta and hot cereal made from semolina in the United States are typically enriched with iron and folic acid. These nutrients are very important for good health, particularly in pregnant women, but are not found in sufficient quantities in a typical American diet that does not include enriched foods. All semolina, regardless of whether it is enriched, contains several important B vitamins; durum semolina is also very high in protein for a grain product. Semolina contains no fat or cholesterol and is very low in sodium.

    4. Rava ladoo is very beautiful Chitra. I like that purple color plate too:) Who says they are out of shape, looks great! Like the way your Mother-in-law grinds the rava (My chithi / aunt also do the same way and they are better than many other methods).
