Rava Coconut Ladoo | Rava Ladoo | Ladoo Recipe

Rava Coconut Ladoo, a delicious and easy to make ladoos with semolina and coconut. Rava ladoo is one of ST's favorite sweet and the only sweet he asks me to make often. So far,apart from the regular rava ladoo, i had tried quite few variations like making them using condensed milk and  sugar syrup without ghee. Each one has its unique taste & texture. And this rava coconut ladoo is my recent favorite in this rava ladoo series. In general, i love anything with coconut in it and coconut gives nice aroma and taste to this ladoo. If you like me who loves coconut, give this method a try on next time when you make rava ladoo.

While making this ladoo, make sure to roast both rava and coconut until they are aromatic, that makes a lot of difference in both taste and texture wise. So far i had made this ladoo for handful of times and in every time, the amount of ghee needed varies slightly plus or minus 2 tsp of ghee. So add ghee little by little and stop when it starts holding shape, even it doesn't hold shape after using all the ghee, you can add more ghee or simply use couple of tsp of warm milk or water. Milk actually reduces the self life of the ladoo, so if you're making this ladoo in large quantities, i recommend to sprinkle couple of tsp of warm water to hold the shape. It doesn't affect the taste at all. Now let's check out how to make this delicious rava coconut ladoos.
