Rawa Laddu

This is a laddu made of rawa (semolina) and I have eaten a lot of varieties. I must say my mom’s really are softest and tastiest – well who doesn’t like their mom’s cooking?! 🙂 Here goes the recipe:


 3 cups small or fine(Bombay) rawa, 2 cups sugar, 1 cup grated fresh coconut, ½ cup ghee, 1 tea spoon cardamom powder, raisins.


  • Roast rawa in ghee in a kadai.
  • Take sugar in a separate vessel, add little water just to cover the sugar and boil to make syrup ( 1 string) – formation of small bubbles indicates that the syrup is ready.
  • Add grated coconut and boil for 2-3 minutes till once again small bubbles form on the surface of the syrup.
  • Switch off the gas and add roasted rawa, cardamom powder and raisins to the syrup
  • Keep the vessel closed till the mixture gets soft and solidified.
  • Prepare laddus by fixing one dry raisin on each one. 

 Tips and tricks:

  • The one string consistency is when the syrup is at the point where you take a drop of the syrup between your thumb and pointer fingers – the syrup forms just one string (instead of two or more or no strings).
