1/4 - 1/2  Cup Milk

Cooking Method

Step 1) Melt some ghee / clarified butter Once the ghee is melted add some cashews and roast until the cashews are golden .Then add some raisins and roast until the raisins are ballooned.
Step 2) Add grated coconut and mix it well (if you like you can aslo add small pieces of coconut cunks)But I always prefer to add grated coconut

Step 3) Then add rava / sooji and roast it for 6-7 minutes on a low heat. once you feel the aroma of the rava add sugar and mix until the sugar is well combined.

Step 4) After the sugar dissolves add some milk, mix well and turn off the heat.
once the mixture cools down slightly make laddoo (take some portion of the mixture and press it in your hands to form ladoo shape)

 Our delicious rawa ladoo is ready with 100% good result. Happy Cooking :)


  • Butter adds extra richness and flavor to the rava ladoo.
  • If you like the flavor of cardamom you can add 1/2 tsp of cardamom to the rava.
  • Adjust the amount of milk ,if the mixture is too dry then it will not hold shape and at the same time if you add too much milk then ladoos will not be good and it may become hard once its cooled completely.
