- Transfer this content of ghee, nuts and raisins to the bowl of rava.
- Add the powdered sugar and cardamom powder and mix it.
- Once it is hot enough to touch, grease your palm with ghee and take a small to medium amount and roll it into balls.
- You can add hot ghee little by little if it is difficult to roll the balls
- Once the rava laddu is ready you can place it in an airtight container and store for a week or more.
In an additional way, you can also add a few tablespoons of desiccated coconut along with nuts in this case you can decrease the sugar content from one cup to ¾ cup. You can also use hot milk while rolling the balls. Both coconut and milk reduces the shelf life so if you try in this way it has to be consumed in one or two days.
