Course: Sweets
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 20


  • 1 cup Rava /sooji/ semolina
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ¼ cup Ghee
  • 1 cardamom
  • 8 Cashew nuts


  • Heat a pan and add the rava,reduce flame and roast the rava until a nice aroma comes,make sure to not change the rava colour and roast evenly. To ensure this,keep stiring continuously.
  • Cool down and grind it into a very fine powder using mixer. (If you are making in bulk,you can grind in mill).
  • Powder the sugar into a very fine powder as well,along with elachi.Transfer the powdered rava and sugar to a large bowl. (if you want you can sieve both to get a smooth finish ladoo).
  • Fry broken cashews in the ghee and add these to the rava and sugar mixture.
  • Mix thoroughly. First you can use a ladle to mix as the ghee will be hot. Wait until it is warm enough to handle.
  • Make small balls out of this mixture immediately, roll it tight,i f you could not roll and the mixture is too dry, add more warm ghee to it and make balls again.



  • At times we add milk as binding agent, but I avoid it these days.
  • Make sure to powder the rava very very fine,if its coarse,it will not hold the shape for long and easily get broken.
  • Add warm,heated ghee and make laddu immediately as this will give you mighty ladoos,wont break easily.
  • Adding more ghee makes the ladoo look dull in colour. So add accordingly.
