Ravva Laddu/Semolina Laddu

When I think of authentic and simple Andhra sweets one thing that comes to my mind is Ravva Laddu. This sweet delicacy can be made with minimal ingredients on hand and in no time.
These laddus are soo yummy and will just melt in your mouth. The recipe below makes 12 laddus if there is no one on your side eating away the mixture while you are making the laddus (Well I am talking about my hubby dear Jajajaja).
Give it a try..


1 cup Semolina/Sooji(Upma ravva)
1/4 cup Dry Coconut Powder
3/4 to 1 cup Powdered Sugar(Depending on you sweet tooth)
1 tsp Elaich/Cardamom Powder
5 tbsp unsalted butter or ghee
4 to5 tbsp milk 
Cashews and Raisins for Garnish


Mix Powdered Sugar and cardamom powder in a bowl and keep aside. In another bowl mix Sooji and coconut powder and keep aside.
Heat the butter or ghee in a pan. Fry the cashews and raisins and keep aside. To the pan now add Sooji and coconut powder mixture and fry until light golden brown color and fragrant, may be for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn off the heat.
Now combine the sugar mixture, semolina mixture very well. Add milk little by little until you are able to shape the mixture to a ball.
Once you get the rollable consistency start shaping the mixture to small balls and garnish with cashews and raisins. Do not worry if the balls are fragile. They will retain their shape once they sit for couple of hours. Now place the rolled balls onto a plate and let them rest for 30 minutes to an hour.
