Rava Laddu / Rava Ladoo

Rava Laddu / Rava Ladoo (Ravecho laddu in Konkan cuisine)  – A delicious sweet in Indian cuisine !!

Makes: 8


½ cup / 100 ml / 4 oz (Indian standard measuring cup) rava (sooji / Bombay rava)

½ cup sugar (First measure sugar  and then make a fine powder in a small mixer bowl)

¼ teaspoon cardamom powder

4 to 5 tablespoons melted ghee


In an iron karahi, dry roast rava on a medium to low heat for 15 minutes until fragrant / light golden in color. Stir continuously. Keep aside to cool for half an hour and then make a powder in a small mixer bowl.

In a wide bowl / deep bowl, mix powdered rava and powdered sugar with cardamom powder. Finally add 4 tablespoons melted ghee. If it’s  easy to make laddu (small balls) then no need to add ghee again. If  it’s difficult to make laddu, then add extra 1 tablespoon ghee (but not more than 1 tablespoon. If the ghee is too much, it won’t get proper shape of the laddu).

Size can vary as per preference. Make strong laddus and  store it in an airtight container. These laddus are strong. It won't break  easily.
