Easy Rava Ladoo Recipe

Rava laddoo - South Indian Feast

Rava Ladoo is one of the easiest sweets ever! It is a huge hit among the kids. I love preparing rava laddoo, it is actually worth the time spent. However you prepare this, thing would never go wrong with this sweet. Unlike many other sweets, you do really have to be very watchful while making this. This recipe is the must for any festivals in India. There are many other laddoo prepared almost the same way, here are to name a few:

Maa laadoo – This is prepared with roasted moong dal flour.

Saththumaavu laadoo – This is another variant where we use mixed sprout flour. One of the healthiest laddoos

Godhumai laadoo – This is prepared with wheat flour. There are many versions for this. I would explain in a new post soon.

Til laadoo/ Yel urundai – This is made with roasted til powder.
