Ravva Laddu

Happy Dasara to all my friends and Family. As this is the season of Navaratri specials i just wanted to share at least one sweet with you all. This is one the favourite sweets to the Goddess so i made this sweet this year for Naivedhyam. This is one of the dishes that i made during these 9days and wanted to share with you all. Yet more to come in my next posts.


Goduma Ravva - 1cup
Grated Coconut - 1cup
Ghee- 3tsp
Cashews- few
Grated Badam - few
Kiss Miss(Raisins)- few
 (i took 1/4 cup of each dry fruits as per our taste)
Sugar - 1 cup
Milk - as needed


  • Heat ghee in a pan and fry the cashews and kiss miss till light brown in color and keep aside.
  • In the same ghee pan add the goduma ravva on low flame fry them till light golden color and take aside in a bowl.
  • Now in the same pan without any ghee add the grated coconut and fry for 5 mins and add this to the goduma ravva bowl.
  • Add the fried dry fruits, elaichi powder and sugar to this mixture and mix well. 
  • To this add some cold milk 1tsp at a time and mix well till they are lightly wet and good enough to make balls.
  • Now make round balls when it is lightly hot only. Because if it is cold it will become hard and when cold serve.
  • You can store them in refrigerator for 2 weeks to enjoy fresh ravva laddu.


  1. Make sure that you do not fry the ravva on high heat. Because it changes the color very easily which makes it taste very bitter. 
  2. Be careful while adding the milk to the mixture at the end. If you add more milk it will avoid us to make balls  easily and will be sticky to hands.
  3. You can add any of the dry fruits of your choice to this recipe.
