Snowball Laddoos aka Rawa Laddoos

Today being Ganesh Chaturthi many of you all are busy just as I was. We here do not keee any idol but just do a small pooja and say prayers and bhajan. I just thought I will post something within the day ends.

I had made these laddoos following Nestle milkmaid recipe. My daughter loved it so much that she has asked me to do it again J.
It is actually a  rawa laddoo nothing much fancy but the name can be fancy isn’t it? So I named them Rawa Laddoo. 

Here is recipe for Rawa Ladoo


Semolina- 1 and ½  cups
Desiccated Coconut – ½  cup +2 tbsp to roll in the laddoos
Sweetened Condensed Milk- 1 ¼ th cup
Milk- around 3 tbsp
Cardamom Powder- ½  tsp
Cashews and Rasins a handfull
Ghee- 1 tbsp


Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and fry the cashews until light brown color.
Take them out of the ghee and set aside. 
In the same pan, add the semolina and fry continuously on a medium flame till they change color to light golden. 
Now add the desiccated coconut to it and fry for a few seconds may be10 seconds(not more than that) on a medium flame. 
Then add roasted nuts,raisins and cardamom powder and mix.
Add the condensed milk and milk to it and mix well until the whole mixture combines to a ball. 
Switch off the flame.
When the mixture is warm enough to handle take a little portion and roll into small lemon balls.
Now in a clean pate add in the 2 tbsp desiccated coconut and roll in all the laddoos in it.
Store them in a air tight container. 

The rolling of the laddoos in desiccated coconut is totally optional.
While roasting cashew nuts you can add in the raisins too. I skip this as I don’t like to plump them up.
This laddoo must be consumed within a week.

Wishing all readers of Aps Kitchen A Blessed and Happy Ganesh Chaturthi.

 Happy Cooking,
