Diwali: Rava Mawa Laddoo

1 cup sooji/rava
1/3 cup coconut desiccated/ flakes
1/2 cup ghee roasted nuts and raisins
1/2- 3/4 cup fine sugar
1/4 cup ghee (warm/melted)
2-3 cardamom pod seeds crushed

In a heavy bottom pan, heat up 1-2 Tbsp ghee and roast the rava for 7-8 minutes on low/med heat. Be careful not to let the rawa turn brown. Add the coconut and sugar. Mix well and roast for an additional 2-3 minutes.

In a shallow big bowl, add the rawa mixture, the dry fruits and the cardamom seeds. Mix well. Add 2-3 Tbsp of warm milk and mix well again till moist. Let cool gently but not completely.

Using greased palms, make small balls of the mixture. Add more warm milk if needed (if mixture is too crumbly)..
