For Coconut and Rava Ladoo

1/2 cup melted ghee
1 tbsp chopped cashewnuts (kaju)
1 tbsp raisins (kismis)
a pinch saffron (kesar) strands
1/2 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder

  1. To make coconut and rava ladoo, dry roast the semolina in a non-stick kadhai on a slow flame for 3 minutes.
  2. Switch off the flame, add the coconut and mix well. Keep aside.
  3. Combine the sugar and 1 cup of water in a sauce pan, mix well and cook on a medium flame for approx. 5 to 6 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Keep this sugar syrup aside to cool slightly.
