Ingredients 

  • 1 cup of  semolina
  • 2 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter)
  • A handful of raisins and cashew nuts
  • 1/2 cup of dry grated coconut 
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of milk 
  • Pinch of cardamom powder

Process

  1. Heat the ghee in a pan and add the cashew nuts and raisins.
  2. keep the flame low throughout the process of making semolina ladoo.
  3. Add the coconut-cardamom mixture to the roasting nuts and raisins.
  4. Mix once and add the semolina next.
  5. Fry this mixture for 2-3 mins and then add the sugar.
  6. Continue to roast the semolina mixture until the colour changes to a light brown. Don’t let it sit and walk away or the semolina will start toasting and turning a golden brown on one side. Once the semolina is browned lightly, turn off the flame and slowly add the milk, stirring continuously as you do so.
  7. Once all the milk is added, continue to mix until the ladoo mixture comes together. It will be quite moist and will stick around your ladle.
  8. When the ladoo mixture is warm enough to handle, make into lemon-sized balls and gently set aside. If the mixture is too dry, sprinkle water or milk as you shape the ladoos.
