  • Rava or Sooji - 1 cup
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Ghee – 5 tbsp
  • Milk – 1/4 cup approx.,
  • Cashew nuts – 10
  • Grated coconut – 5 tbsp (optional)
  • Cardamom – 2


  • Heat a pan and dry roast rava/suji over low flame for 3-4 mins stirring continuously until the raw smell disappears. This is to prevent the rava at the bottom from changing color. Transfer to a plate and let it cool completely.
  • Break the cashew nuts into very small pieces.
  • Heat the same pan again with 2 tsp ghee. Add the broken cashew nuts and roast until golden brown. Drain and keep aside.
  • Add the grated coconut to the remaining ghee and roast over low flame until you get a nice aroma. Keep aside.
  • In a mixer first add the roasted rava and cardamom and run for 1 minute till they become a coarse powder.
  • Now add the roasted coconut, sugar and run the mixer for 2-3 minutes until the sugar also is powdered and all the ingredients get combined well. Transfer to a big plate or bowl.
  • Add the roasted cashew nuts and mix well.
  • Meanwhile warm up the milk in a bowl and keep it ready.
  • Heat the remaining ghee in a pan and once it melts, pour it over the rava mixture and mix with your fingertips.
  • Add the warm milk little by little with a spoon and make balls with your hands.
  • Place the balls on a plate arranging them side by side.
  • Leave it for ½ – 1 hour and it will harden by itself.
  • Store these rava ladoos in an airtight container and enjoy.
