Rava laddu with sugar syrup Ingredients Ravai/Sooji/Semolina - 1 cup Sugar - 3/4 cup Water - 1/2 cup Ghee - 1 tbsp Cashews - 1 tsp Raisins - 1 tsp Cardamom - 2 First heat the pan with ghee, add the cashews & raisins, roast till cashews becomes golden brown and raisins slightly puff up. Now add rava in it and roast the rava till you get a nice aroma. Now remove the rava from the heat and transfer into another plate,let it cool. In the same pan, add sugar & water. Allow the sugar to dissolve in the water and then bring the sugar syrup to boil. At this stage, add the rava. Mix well with sugar syrup and switch off the flame. Add the crushed cardamom and cover it with lid for 15 mins. At this stage the rava mixture is slightly watery,but dont worry after 15 mins, the rava absorbs all the water and become a thick mass. After 15 mins, mix well and transfer the rava mixture into a plate. Allow the rava mixture to cool. Once it becomes cool, try to mix it with your hand. It should be hand bearable temperature. Now, lightly grease your hands with ghee and make ladoos. Allow to cool completely and store in air tight container. Note:We can keep these ladoos for a week in room temperature. If you want, you can increase the sugar up to 1 cup. But dont add more water, other wise it becomes watery.This ladoos will be pale in color when it's hot, but once it's cooled, the color becomes white.
