Rava Badam Ladoo with Saffron


Rava Badam Ladoo with Saffron

Rava badam ladoo is a very simple sweet that can be easily prepared and instantly served. Children especially love to munch this soft and smooth ladoo. My son is a bit fussy about food but loves this ladoo . I have made some alteration to the basic Rava ladoo. Again the mother in me!!!
I have added Badam powder and saffron to this ladoo. It tastes great and is more appealing to the eye. I thought i will share this, with those of you out there, who has children and would like to add a bit extra to their food.


Ingredients
Rava or Semolina- 1 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Coconut- 1/2 cup
Milk - 5-6 tsp
Cardamon- 1/3 tsp
Badam powder- 5 tsp
Saffron - a pinch
Ghee- 3 tsp
Cashew nut- 6-8
Raisins- 2 tsp.

Heat ghee in a pan and roast cashew nut and set aside. Now roast raisins till they are fluffy and set aside. In the same pan roast coconut till golden brown

Take milk and dilute the saffron and keep aside.

Take a little more of ghee and roast rava till golden brown and add sugar ( powdered) and allow it to slowly melt in a low flame. Add in the badam powder, coconut and cardamon powder and now slowly pour in the milk. Add little by little and press down with the spoon. Add raisins and Cashew nut and wait till the mixture cools down a bit. Take handful and roll into small balls.

Try this recipe..

Hope you will all enjoy!!
