Rava ladoo....a yummy yummy ladoo

I love rava ladoos and I cant tell you how much..... my mouth is watering when I am writing this now. I know and my dear ones know that I can just keep eating and eating them all the time. Love my mom for the way she makes it. They are just too yummy. I remember that my mom always used to pack this when I was in hostel. Also I have a dear aunt who makes it for me every time I visit her .. thanks to you Viji aunty :)

It is a simple, sweet and classic dessert that no one can ever resist. Roasting a few ingredients and bringing them all together is easy and fun too. Kids love it too and so that is a plus

This is what u'll need....

Rava/Sooji/Semolina - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup (adjust to taste)
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Elaichi/Cardamom - 5-6 pods
Cashews and raisins for garnish
