Mast Ladoo

Here is a recipe of ladoo I arrived at when I saw that during Diwali when we make besan ladoo and rava ladoo the besan ladoos get over faster than the rava ladoos. At home some like besan for the aroma and flavor other hate it because it stick to the roof of the mouth. Rava ladoos don't taste as good as besan says my kid cousin. So thought of concocting something that takes care of every ones likes and I don't have waste the leftover rava ladoos. Lets call them Mast ladoo as it too good ladoos :)

1 cup rava
1 cup chickpea flour (besan/ Kadle pudi)
1 cup powder sugar
1 cup ghee
1\4 teaspoon elaichi powder
cashew nuts and raisin for decoration

In a heavy bottom pan add the ghee and heat. Then add the chickpea flour and fry it till golden color. Do not leave it unattended else it will burn. Keep stiring then add rava and roast till you get a nice smell of roasted rava and besan. Taste to check that besan is cooked properly should not give raw taste else it will make ladoos bitter and spoil the stomach too.

Remove from gas and add powder sugar in the roasted rava-besan mix. Stir and homogenize it then let it stand till cool.

The ladoo mix should be still warm enough to shape into ladoos add elaichi powder and mix again. Take a handful of mix and shape ladoos and decorate with 1 cashew nut and 1 raisin. Give the finish to the ladoo such that the cashew nut should cradle the raisin like the moon and star.
Pop one ladoo in your mouth and mail me about how it tastes.
