For this month,it was decided that before the Challenge begins,we’ll have a red carpet dish..er trial dish before the REAL challenge.Srivalli suggested Rava Laddoo and it was accepted by all.Why is it that this sweet is tried out by many except me,Oh yeah,it happens to me all the time:).I remember having mouthful of this laddoo during Diwali,when this was made in huge numbers.I don’t remember ever helping out amma while making these and anyway,I suck at shaping them in perfect rounds,so amma could very well do without my help;).
I was hesitant at the outcome of the laddoos,but the recipe is quite easy and I didn’t get any major hiccups while doing it.I was apprehensive about the shape too,but I guess they look fine.
So let me introduce the first dish or rather the trial dish for the Indian Cooking Challenge-Rava Laddoo.
Cooking method- I followed the exact recipe given by Srivalli[you can check out the recipe in her blog here].
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 25 gms
Milk - 25 ml
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Cashew nuts - 10 whole nuts
Raisins - 10 nos
In a bowl, take all the roasted Rava, Nuts, Coconut and add the Cardamom powder. Then add the sugar. Mix well.[I skipped this step,instead,I added everything into the kadai afer roasting the rava and continued with the recipe].
I enjoyed this month's challenge,trial dish actually-nevertheless.I am looking forward to the upcoming challenges..way to go:)
