Rava Laddu

2 cups Rava - Sooji
1/2 cup freshly grated Coconut - Optional
2 cups Sugar
5 - 6 tsp Ghee
1/2 tsp Elachi powder
Cashew nuts
Less than 1/4 cup Milk

Take 2 tsp of ghee in a skillet and fry cashew nuts and raisins till they are nicely done. Remove from the skillet into a glass bowl.

Add 1 tsp of ghee and fry rava for a few minutes and then add freshly grated coconut till the mixture changes into a nice golden yellow. Add elachi powder.

Transfer the mixture into the glass bowl, add sugar and remaining ghee and mix well. Heat milk in a micro oven (to a boil) and gently sprinkle on the rava, mixing using the palm of the hand and making into a round ball pressing tight. Add milk as required.

Nuts and raisins are optional. Save in the refrigerator in a box to retain freshness.
