Today I’m going to share a quick sweet recipe that is made with only a few ingredients like semolina, sugar, nuts, milk and ghee.
I hope u all guessed it! Yes it’s Rava Ladoo, a popular traditional Maharashtrian sweet prepared almost in every household for all the festivals.Rava Ladoo is simple and easy to prepare but still exotic.
I have sweet childhood memories associated with these ladoos.My uncle used to make these little treat whenever I used to visit him.He would make a jar full of these ladoos and give it to me.Now whenever I make these ladoos, it reminds me of my uncle and his amazingly delicious ladoos.I really love these beautiful childhood memories, that still make me smile.
Usually I make Rava Ladoo using sugar syrup but today I decided not to.The method today I used is fool proof and you can never go wrong.These ivory white, melt in mouth textured ladoos are made using sugar powder.
As I have used milk for binding, I suggest making and consuming it fresh.And if you want to have it later then keep refrigerated and use with in 2-3 days.
