Deepti Rawal's Secret Indian Recipe !

Preparation Time: 
5 mins
Cooking Time: 
10 mins


Suji / Rawa : 2 cups
Fresh coconut : 1 cup
Sugar : 1/2 cup
Cardamom: 1/4 tsp
Nuts : any nuts roughly chopped (I used, chashew & raisins)
Ghee: 2 tbsp
In a non stick pan heat the ghee, add the nuts roast them for a few seconds. Remove and set aside.
In the same ghee add suji and roast in ghee for 2 mins of till it turns slight brownish and starts releasing a nutty aroma
Now add the nariyal/ fresh grated coconut and mix well
Add sugar. Mix well and let the mixture cook for 3-5 mins on low heat
As the mixture begins to thicken add cardamom powder (optional) and nuts
Turn off heat remove on a flat surface and spread with the help of a spoon
This will allow it to cool fater
Once a little its at a tempreture at which you can comfortably touch, start making small round ladoos (balls)
Serve cold or at room tempreture
If the mixture is not holding shape... quickly make the balls and refrigerate for 20 mins to set....
