Carrot Ravva Ladoo

I made these yummy ladoos for Raki.  The preparation of theses ladoos is similar to ravva ladoos except with minimal changes and add ons.


1cup sooji/upma ravva
1/2cup carrot(grated)
1/2cup boiled milk
1/2cup coconut(powdered)
1/2 cup sugar
cashews for garnishing


In a pan add the ghee, once it is hot fry the cashews and keep them aside.
In the same pan fry ravva, once it starts to spread aroma add the grated carrot, fry till the raw sell is gone(it takes approx. 2mins.).
Add coconut, sugar, elachi powder and fry for about a min. then add the boiled milk and remove from the flame,( the consistency should not be watery, if so, just set it aside for few min. then it will become little hard),geese your Palm with ghee and shape them into round balls and garnish them with cashew pieces.
