Use only medium or fine Sooji to make this ladoo . To make a delicious rava ladoo , firstly roast sooji with a tsp of ghee till fragrant . Use a good quality home made desi ghee to make any Indian Sweets , it gives nice aroma and taste to the dish. Also fresh grated coconut is used here , you can use dessicated coconut too. Ghee / clarified butter is used to bind the ladoo . Also 1-2 tbsp of warm milk can also be sprinkled to bind ladoo’s. Though adding milk is optional , as it is easy to bind , I use it.

I made this rava ladoo on the occasion of Varamahalakshmi festival . For me this festival is associated with a friend of mine – Sowmya . Her divinity , faith and religious belief for this particular festival made me to follow and pray Goddess Lakshmi on this day . Though she is 1000 miles away from me, I remember her and do all sweets and savouries on this day .
