RAVE UNDE / SEMOLINA / SOOJI KA LADDOO /

Posted in : SWEETS / UNDE/LADDU / BURFI / HOLIGE/POORAN POLI / HALWA on by : Divya Suresh

One of the authentic South Indian sweets, that needs no introduction. I always make these unde ( laddoo ) using sugar ( granular ), never like to do this with powdered sugar. This time I tried it by adding comparatively very less sugar and we liked it too. It is indeed a very easy recipe which is very simple to make, healthy and yummy. Preferably small grain semolina ( Upma rava ) will be perfect for making these laddoos  and for that extra added flavour you can use cardamom or saffron or cloves powder etc but without any of these also it smells equally good as we roast semolina till fragrant.

 

 

 

        Ingredients :

  • Rave / Semolina / sooji – 1 cup
  • Ghee – 2 tbsp
  • Sugar – 1/3 cup ( can be increased according to taste )
  • Dry coconut ( grated ) – 1/4 cup ( heaped )
  • Cashew nuts, Almonds and Raisins – 1/4 cup (altogether)
  • Milk ( warm ) – 2 to 4 tbsp ( for binding )

 

        PROCEDURE :

  • Heat ghee in a pan add cashews, almonds, raisins and semolina
  • Fry everything on a medium flame till semolina is fragrant , don’t burn it, keep stirring continuously
  • Add dry coconut ( use freshly grated coconut ) fry till coconut is warm ( ie for 1 minute or so ) while combining everything
  • Remove from the fire and transfer everything into a container
  • Add sugar and sprinkle warm milk and mix everything well
  • Take portions and make laddoo of desired size ( generally it is always small in size )
  • Immediately make laddoos when it is still warm
  • Now let them cool down completely before you store them

 

         NOTE : you can add little more milk , if you are finding it difficult to make laddoos
