3 Cups Rava (semolina)
3 tbsp Coarse ground dry nuts(cashew nuts, pistas, almonds, and walnuts)
3 tsp Ghee (clarified butter)
3-4 tsp Milk
1 Cup sugar
2 tsp dessicated coconut
3 Saffron strands
A few Cardamoms (crushed)
Drop saffron strands in the cup of Milk and set aside.
Heat rava with ghee in a heavy bottom pan, and stir fry till it changes colour. Mix in the nuts, coconut and cardamon. Continue stirring. When aroma rises then add the sugar and stir for 3 to 10 mins.
Now pour in the saffron flavored milk and remove from heat.
After mixture cools down a little, grease palms with some oil and make small balls out of it. (put a dry nut in the middle if you like).
Optionally, you can decorate laddus with silver foil (vark).
