Rava/Semolina Ladoos

4 cups rava/semolina
1 1/2 cups ghee
3 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1 cup coconut (I used the dried coconut powder)
elaichi/cardamom powder

MethodRoast rava in ghee till you get a nice aroma. To this add the coconut and mix well on low flame for about 5 more minutes. Make sugar syrup - till its a consistency of 1 string. Add elaichi powder to this syrup. Once the rava mixture is cooled add it to the syrup and mix well. Keep mixing it at every 1/2 hour intervals. In 3 hours ladoos are ready to be rolled. When rolling ladoos, if the batter gets too dry - add 1 teaspoon of warm milk - and try again. if still dry add another 1 teaspoon.
When rolling ladoos add a raisin to it for a surprise in the mouth while eating JThis mixture yields around 36 to 40 ladoos.
