Made Rava Ladoos as offering for Krishna Janmashtami. The recipe is from Show Me The Curry. Here's how I made them:
1 cup medium rava
1/4 stick unsalted butter (4 tbsp)
3/4 cup dry shredded coconut
1 cup sugar
2.5 oz evaporated or regular milk
Handful of toasted broken cashew pieces
Pinch of cardamon pwd and saffron strands
In a thick bottom pan, melt the butter and roast the rava in it on medium low heat for 15 - 20 mins or until aromatic.
Add the shredded dry coconut & sugar. Mix well and continue roasting for 5 mins.
Add the cardamon pwd., saffron strands and cashews. Mix well.
Add the milk, take off heat and mix till well incorporated.
After 2 mins., start moulding the laddos. Grease palms frequently with some ghee while shaping into balls.
This makes 20-25 small lemon size ladoos.
