Rava ladoo is my all time favourite sweet,My amma made Rava ladoo and sent it with me when I came to the US, I kept it for a month and enjoyed it, it’s very and simple recipe. I wanted to do this for keeping as Naivedhya for Shridi Sai Baba last Thursday, but before I could do make the ladoo I was worried how it would turn out. Luckily it came out well in the first attempt.

My DH who does not like sweets that much, eat it and wanted more, I was one happy person.  Since I have not posted any Indian sweet recipes, so this hopefully will be the start of sweets category too sigh. I have used quarter, cup, coz it was first attempt in making Rava ladoo, so I tried it with very less quantity,You can double triple and make more yummy Rava ladoo’s. ok let start with the recipe.
