Rava laddu

Rava laddu - Sabitha Shenoy

I always prepare it with one small idly mound rava and that gives me 6-7 laddus.
Fry on low flame 2tbsp ghee and rava until you get a nice aroma.Add chopped cashews, pistachios and raisins. But the colour of rava should not change.
Transfer this on to a plate. In the same Kadai add 1/2 cup of sugar and less than 1/2 cup water. Heat and make into half string syrup. When The syrup stats boiling, with in 2-3 seconds you will get 1/2 thread consistency. Add cardamom powder and saffron.Switch off fire, add fried rava mix , it may look watery but do not worry.keep it covered until you see upma consistency. It can take an hour or more depending on the qty of rava. Now make laddus. Fragrant softish tasty laddus are ready.
Opt: coconut also can be added. It has to be mixed with rava and kept for half an hour and then roasted. Qty of rava can be reduced and that can be replaced with coconut scrapping.
