Coming to the recipe rava urundai is a simple and easy to make sweet which can be made in a jiffy.
For every Diwali my mom makes rava urundai and pasiparuppu urundai(recipe coming soon) since its our family's favorite.But after marriage I tried couple of times and it didn't come out as good as my mom makes.As my mom is here for this Diwali I wanted to learn from her.
My mom makes two versions of rava urundai one is with the coconut and the other one without coconut which has a longer shelf life.Today's recipe is the later one and here goes the recipe.........
Fry the cashews in a tsp of ghee and keep aside.In the same pan roast the rava in a medium flame till the aroma comes.Once it cools down powder the rava and cardamom in a blender or mixie to a fine powder and set aside.
- While adding the ghee to the mixture it should be hot.
- If your are not able to make the balls add couple of tbs of warm milk to the mixture but the shelf life will be less if milk is used.
- Powder the rava to a fine powder and do not over roast the rava otherwise the color will change.
- When you are making larger quantity add the hot ghee for a small amount of mixture and make the balls.
