Rava Urundai/Rava Ladoo

Hello friends I am back after a small break and settling down to the new routine.Hope everyone is getting ready for Deepavali.
Before getting into the recipe I would like to share that my blog has reached 1 lakh hits last month and like to convey my heartfelt thanks to my blogger buddies,friends and readers.
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.........


Cardamom/ellakai 4nos.

                            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.
Now take the sugar and powder it to a fine powder.In a wide mixing bowl mix both the powdered rava and sugar,add the fried cashews and mix it well.
Meanwhile melt the ghee and add it to the powder,mix it well,at this stage the mixture looks crumbly.Take a small amount of mixture in the palm and make a small ball.
Easy to make rava urundai/ladoo is ready.


  • 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.
