Rava Laddu

This is one of our family's favorite sweet. When ever I makes this its a big hit. This is my mom's recipe missing you amma...But this turns out so good like my mom's...


Rava/Soiji                          1 cup
Sugar                                    1 cup
Broken Cashew                1 Tbsp
Rasins                                  1 Tbsp
Cardamom powder         1 tsp
Coconut shredded           2 Tbsp
Ghee                                      2 Tbsp

Cooking trime: 15- 20 min. Preparation time: 30 min. Makes: 25 Laddu's


  1. In a pan heat ghee add rasins and cashew and roast them, when it turns golden brown add rava and roast it until its warm.
  2. Keep this mixture aside for cooling.
  3. In another pan add sugar and water (until sugar immerse).
  4. Boil this when it starts to reach one string consistency (approximately 8- 10 minutes) add coconut and cardamom give a stir and turn off the stove.
  5. Now add rava and mix with sugar syrup, it will be like a pudding consistency.
  6. Let it cool down for one hour. Then make small balls out of that. If it’s sticky use ghee to coat your pam for making balls.
  7. Allow it to dry and store in air tight container. It will stay good for a week or refrigerate for 2- 3 weeks.  

  • If you add rava before one string consistency your mixture will be too loose it takes long time to cool down, it will be too sticky use ghee for making balls.
  • If you go to next string consistency your mixture will turn dry. In this case sprinkle some milk while making balls. But self life will reduce.
