Rava Laddoo/ Semolina Balls (Sooji ke Laddo) NEW YEAR: Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye

                                                                                     
Hi Blogger Friends and Readers, 

First of all a very happy and prosperous New Year to all of you and your family. I am very happy to receive so many encouraging messages from all of you during last year and that has made me work even harder to prepare and share with you new and varied recipes. I hope to receive the same if not more encouragement from all of you in this year as well. So let me begin this year on a sweet note. The recipe for today is called Sooji Ladoo which is a traditional dessert particularly from Northern India. hope you like it. 





                                                                       
Ingredients:
1 cup Sooji (semolina-fine quality)
1 cup Ghee
1 cup Granulated Sugar
8-10 Raisins
8-9 Cashews
1/2 cup Milk
!/2 tsp Cardamom powder
1/2 cup Dry coconut(grated)


Method:
Take a deep pan and heat ghee on medium flame. Roast cashews and raisins.




                                                   
 When the raisins expand and cashews are fried, add sooji and roast till it leaves nice aroma.
                                                             
 Do not let the color of sooji change into light brown. Add sugar and mix it well.


                                                           
Turn off the heat and add dry coconut and cardamom powder. Make sure there are no lumps. 

                                                                   
Add warm milk little by little and mix well.

Take little quantity of the mixture in your hand and try to make little sized ball by pressing it gently. Now you have to act quickly here because it's easier to make the mixture into balls if the mixture is warm. Keep these delicious laddoos aside for 20 minutes. Later enjoy these yummy balls.....




                                                                     
        My dear friend Sonu has passed me a lovely award which I'm happy to post it on my first recipe of the year. Thank you dear and welcome back after a break.
