BM #93 Week 3 Day 1 -

This week I have chosen the ingredient Rava/Sooji/Semolina as my star ingredient and plan to showcase some recipes which are popular at home.

For today's post, I have used Roohafza, a rose flavored sweetened syrup, reduced the sugar content in the laddu and made these rava laddus.

These will be loved by the people who love rose flavor and we found them to be very addictive. 

Ingredients - 

Bombay Rava/ Sooji/Semolina 1 cup
Dry Coconut Grated/Powdered 1/2 cup
Mixed Nuts Coarsely Powdered 1/4 cup
Rose Syrup 1 Tbsp or more as preferred [Roohafza]
Sugar 3/4 cup - 1 cup (as desired)
Ghee - 2 Tbsp or more if desired
Cashews broken handful
Raisins handful
Milk 1/2 cup or as needed

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated kadai/deep pan , add a Tbsp of ghee and fry the cashews and raisins until the cashews are golden brown in color. Keep them aside in a separate bowl.

In the same kadai, add the remaining ghee and add the rava and powdered nuts. Roast until it gets a golden hue and gives out a good smell. In the warm kadai, roast the coconut powder too. Let the rava cool down to room temperature.

In a mixing bowl, add the roasted rava, coconut, cashews and raisins. Add fine sugar and gently mix. If the sugar grain is too granulated, it is better to grind it to a powdered form. Since we use fine sugar I didn't have to do this process.

Mix the rose syrup in warm milk and gradually add the warm rose milk to the mixture and check if the consistency is right to make a laddu. 

Take small portions of the mixture, make laddus by gently bouncing the mixture in your hand. Take care not to press the laddu too hard as they would become very hard upon drying. 

Gently place the laddus in a plate to let them air dry. When they are dry enough, store them in an airtight container. 


Preparation Time 30 minutes
