Rava Laddu Sooji Ladoo – Indian Sweet


when my father come to visit us, My mother used to make tasty laddoos on a very first day. Still I remember my father never said “enough” to rava laddoos. He can finish 6 -7 laddus at a stretch. Whenever my mom prepares laddos, she prepares 100’s of laddoos. 🙂 This laddoo is not only my fathers favorite but also my favorite sweet recipe. This is the first sweet reicpe, which I learnt from my mom. I served rava laddoos to few of my german class mates, they liked it so much. So I thought why not to share with others. In this recipe I have used sugar sprinkles (German name: Zukhersteusel) to make colourful laddoos. Usually, Germans use these sugar sprikles for preparing cakes. Some people add safron to get a nice aroma. But I like the aroma of cardomom, I used just cardomoms. Here is the recipe for making Rava Laddu Sooji Ladoo – Indian Sweet with step by step photographs.
