Ravva Laddu


I have known and ate Ravva laddus since my brother was a baby and used to mispronounce them as ‘lavva laddu’ . It was a pleasant nostalgia, when I made these yesterday and my son asked me what they are and repeated ‘Mummy Lavva laddus are yummy’. We burst out laughing, all eyes were on my brother at once teasing him.  They are quick , easy and have a great texture. The laddus keep well for a minimum of two weeks.

This recipe makes about 15 laddus but if you are like me, who is shaping the ladus with one hand and galloping a laddu using the other, then you will end up with 12 🙂

1 Cup rava/Sooji/Semolina

1/2 Cup Grated coconut

1/3 Cup Milk

1/4 Cup Sugar or more according to you taste

3 Cardomoms – Ground

Add the semolina and keep stirring for 2 mins untill the semolina is roasted. Add the sugar and then half the milk. Mix well and take it off the heat. Add the rest of the milk the stirr well. Shape the laddus when the mixture is warm enough to handle. Enjoy fresh and warm ARV Laddus or  leave them to dry. You can store the laddus in an air tight container and enjoy!
