Rave Unde-Rava Laddoo

Rave Unde

Who doesn’t like Rave Unde made out of pure ghee right? I never use ghee in any of my cooking, but when preparing this sweet dish for Lord Krishna during Janmasthami, I could not deny ghee for the Lord. I prepared Ghee with 3 sticks of unsalted butter, and made Rave Unde and Besan Unde; used just 1/2 of the ghee. Anyway, here comes the recipe for quick and easy Rave Unde. Just remember, I did this for the first time, and the you can see the results in the above picture. It was very tasty too.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fine Rava or Sooji
  • 1 cup powdered Sugar
  • 9-10 cloves
  • 1/4 cup of Raisins and cashew nuts
  • Cardamom or Elaichi Powder to taste
  • less than 1/4 cup Ghee

Method:

  1. Put the Ghee in a thick bottom pan.
  2. Next, when the ghee is hot enough, add raisins, cashew nuts, and cloves and fry on medium heat until the raisins plump. They almost become double of their size.
  3. Next, in the same pan, along with the raisins, nuts and cloves fry the Sooji also on medium heat until a nice aroma comes. Just like you do for Kesari Bath.
  4. Make sure the Sooji doesn’t get burned or change color.
  5. This might take around 15-20 minutes of frying.
  6. Next, add the powdered sugar and ground cardamom powder and mix all these well.
  7. When the mixture is cool to handle, sprinkle a few drops of Milk and make Ladoo
