Rava Ladoo


  • 1 cup rawa (semolina)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (if you like it too sweet you can take 1 cup sugar to 1 cup semolina) 
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • water as required *
  • 5-6 Cardamom, powder
  • 10-12 raisins


  1. In a thick bottom pan roast semolina till its slightly almond color. Fry on medium flame, don't rush and keep stirring.
  2. When finished, in another pan add the sugar and add water * just to soak the sugar and boil.
  3. Boil until sugar is dissolved and further 3-4 min. Turn off the gas when done.
  4. Add roasted semolina and stir well, add cardamom powder and raisins.
  5. Close with the lid, keep it aside for 15-20 min.
  6. Now you can make ladoos ( small plum size shape).
  7. Let it cool properly before storing. 


  • You can add slightly roasted coconut in the mixture as well.
  • For colour you can add Saffron when the sugar and water is boiling.
  • Make the ladoos till the mixture is warm else it gets difficult to get the shape and becomes crumbly.
  • If the mixture does not get dry after keeping for about 20mins, you can slightly heat it to get it dry.
  • If the rava is not roasted properly, the laddoos become sticky so to avoid it fry semolina well till it turns slightly almond brown and on low- medium flame.
