BM #89 Week 2 Day 3 - 

To conclude the series of stuffed dishes, here is a dessert which is close to my heart.

If you are a Gulkhand lover, then this is a must have dessert. I have made the laddus in a slightly smaller size so that it can be popped into your mouth which makes the flavor of gulkhand burst while chewing it :). 

My husband who is a greater fan of gulkhand felt that the gulkhand was not enough in the laddu :). 

Ingredients - 

Bombay Rava/ Sooji/Semolina 1 cup
Dry Coconut Grated/Powdered 1/2 cup
Mixed Nuts Coarsely Powdered 1/4 cup
Gulkhand 1/4 cup
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.

Now gradually add warm milk to the mixture and check if if the consistency is right to make a laddu. 

Meanwhile divide the Gulkhand into 12-15 portions. Roll them into marble shapes. 

Take small portions of the mixture, embed the gulkhand portion and 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 air tight container. 


Preparation Time 30 minutes
Makes 12-15
