Rava laddu is a sweet ball prepared with rava/semolina, sugar, milk and nuts. It is one of my favorite sweets. My mom makes it often when we come from school. Rava laddu can be prepared with few ingredients and it also takes less time to cook. My friends mom used to grind rava after roasting it but I don’t like that way. Because I like to feel the rava while biting the laddu.

  • Once rava get roasted, you can grind them in a mixer grinder/ blender to a fine powder and follow the rest of the steps as it is to make laddu.
  • Do not over roast the rava because it spoils the taste of the laddu.
  • You can increase or decrease sugar as per your taste.
  • Do not add too much milk as it will make laddu saggy. Pour milk little by little so that you know how much you need.
