Heat 3 tbsp of ghee in a nonstick pan.
Add rava and stir till the rava is light brown.
Allow it to cool.
Fry cashews and raisins separately in ghee and keep them aside.
Powder rava and sugar in a mixie so that it blends easily. Keep this aside.
Powder the dessicated coconut.
Add cardamom and cloves along with this coconut to the cool rava mix and mix well.
Sprinkle milk over the mix.
Make small balls by pouring ghee slowly.
When the consistency is little loose, make balls off it.
Place one cashew/raisin to each ball.
The Rava Ladoo balls will become firm when kept for 15 min.

:- Rava Ladoo is ready.
:- Enjoy this yummy Rava Ladoo.

Adi poli recipe.Everybody liked it!Thanks.
I think you might have fried rava a bit overtime.It should be removed from fire the moment the color changes.Only thing I can think of is to add more ghee and milk. Enjoy!!
this was an excellent recipe- very clear instructions easy to make i like the tips you gave too! thank you so much- its folks like you who make this site so good thanks again!I hope you will post some more recipes which i may try later!!
it was too good. my hubby and i enjoyed. easy to make also. i never thought rava ladoo is so easy.
The recipe turned out to be simply superb. But when I made it, the rava in the ladoo was a bit crispy(only a little bit), is that how it must be or should it be very soft. If it must be soft, then what changes should i make? I havent ate this before. Kindly respond.

It was very delicious and most of all it was easy to prepare.Thankyou sowmya.
