Coconut and Rava Ladoo ( Laddu) recipe with step by step photos
  1. To make Coconut Rava Ladoo first take semolina in deep non-stick kadhai.
  2. Then dry roast the semolina on a slow flame for 3 minutes. This will remove the raw taste and also if the semolina is not roasted the ladoos will be sticky.
  3. Switch off the flame, add the freshly grated coconut. Mix well and keep aside.
  4. In another sauce pan take sugar.
  5. Add water.
  6. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for approx. 5 to 6 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  7. Keep this sugar syrup aside to cool slightly.
  8. Now in a deep kadhai heat the ghee.
  9. Add the semolina-coconut mixture.
  10. Add chopped cashewnuts.
  11. Add raisins. Then mix well and cook on medium flame for 5 to 6 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  12. Add the sugar syrup.
  13. Add the saffron strands. Saffron will give out a nice yellow tinge and flavour to the ladoos.
  14. And cardamom powder for flavour and aroma.
  15. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes, while stirring continuously. The mixture will thicken and release some ghee.

  17. Spread the Coconut Rava Ladoo mixture in a thali and keep aside to cool. It will take about 2 hours to cool completely.
  18. Once cooled, scrape out the mixture from the thali , bring it together and again mix well.
  19. Now take a portion of the mixture shape it into a round ball.
  20. Roll between your palms to make a round ladoo. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make more ladoos.

   Hi, This recipe has been tried two times and it came out perfect, what could have wrong with your ladoos is the cooking of the sugar syrup that is the only thing that can make your ladoo''s hard....

Was very excited to try this recipe as its from Tarla Dalal, unfortunately after cooling the laddoos didn''t form very easily, they would break apart??. With much effort then I finished forming them all. I don''t think I''ll try it again??

   Hi Farida, It is important to cook the sugar syrup properly. If the sugar syrup is not cooked properly, it will affect the binding of the laddoos. You can watch our video to get a better detailed idea about it. Do try this recipe once again and we are sure it will work and share your valuable feedback with us. http://www.tarladalal.com/coconut-rava-laddoo-video-by-tarla-dalal-965v
