Rawa Laddoo

Last week I was craving for these sooji laddoos, which were my fav fav laddoos during my childhood. My mom used to make these very often and in a large quantity but they would vanish within 2-3 days . And YES!! I used to gobble most of them :) and it had been soo many years since I last ate this laddoo and thus decided to make these on my own for the 'first time'. I know...I know....the shape of my laddoos are not perfectly round as it should be :( COZ ...After removing it from the heat, I was busy talking on the phone and by the time I went back to make the balls it had hardened a bit. But who cares about the shape , when the taste was awesome and as along as my sweet tooth was happy and satisfied :D

RAWA LADDOO

Ingredients:
1 cup of Sooji/semolina,
3/4th cup of sugar,
1/2 cup of dessicated coconut,
2-3 tbsp of pure ghee,
1/4 sup of warm milk,
a pinch of cardamom powder,
1/4th cup of cashew nuts and1/4th cup of raisins.
Method:
Heat the ghee in a non stick kadai/wok on low heat. Add the cashewnuts and raisind and roast till they change their colour to dry brown. Now remove them from the ghee and keep aside. In the same ghee add the sooji and roast till it changes its colour and and a nice aroma fill your kitchen. Now add the sugar and dessicated coconut to the sooji/ semolina and roast for few more minutes. Remove from heat and add a pinch of cardamom powder and the milk -just enough to moisten it a little bit. Add the roasted cashew nuts and raisins to this and form small balls and enjoy these yummy laddoos.

Notes:
Don't add all the milk at once, add little by little just add enough to moisten it.
One can use sugar syrup instead of milk to increase shelf life because if adding milk these should be consumed within 2-3 days.
