Print Friendly and PDF

My MIL is an expert in making Rava ladoo without using milk and coconut (Semolina ladoo in English). Generally South Indians make rava laddu for special occasions at home. People make this sooji ladoo just by using roasted rava. But my MIL makes it different from the usual method. Just because of this variation my husband loves this ladoo a lot. I’ve tried this rava laddu for many occasions. Its a fool proof recipe. It never went wrong. Try this and let me know friends :) I am bad in shaping the ladoos .So please bear with the irregular shapes;) Ok, lets see how to prepare rava laddu with step by step pictures.

U can add milk and reduce ghee to make laddus . But the shelf life will be reduced..

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).

Thank you so much. Shape comes by practice :)

Hi chitra, I tried your recipe.. I'm unable to grind rava to smooth powder in mixie ...Can you help ?

Chitra said...

Hi Vidhya, If the rava is not roasted properly, grinding may be difficult. Just roast it for a minute and try to grind. Grind continuously for few minutes. It should powder well. Just sieve it and again grind as shown in the method.
