Ladoo were my favorite sweet. I can gobble any number of ladoos . This ladoo with carrot I made for a birthday celebration. It was a huge hit in our family.
This ladoo with the natural colour from the carrot gives it a eye catchy orange colour. This will be a easy way to make kids to have carrot. We can even tell kids that this was the ladoo which Chotta Bheem ( Animated character in a Indian show ) used to have for his strength.
Rava / Semolina / Sooji – 1 cup
Carrot - 1 ( Large )
Sugar – ½ cup
Clarifies butter / Ghee – 4 tbs
Milk - 2tbs
Cardamon – 2 ( optional )
Peel off the skin and grate the carrot. I used a small grater so the carrot blends well and there won’t be large pieces.
Heat a tablespoon of ghee and fry the cashew and raisins separately.
Then , add the grated carrot to the same pan and sauté for two minutes and take off from pan and keep separately.
In the same pan , add the rava and roast till the nice aroma comes on a medium flame.
Grind the Cardamon along with the sugar to a fine powder.
In a bowl , add the roasted rava , carrot , cashew , raisins and powdered sugar combine well.
Warm the remaining ghee and add this to the rava mixture and mix well.
If you were not able to shape ladoo , add the warm milk and shape.
Let it to dry for an hour and store in airtight container.
Carrot Rava Ladoo are ready to serve.
I got around 15 ladoos , it depends on the size of the ladoo.
Cardamon powder can be skipped as the carrot gives a unique flavor.
Milk is used to bind the contents as we finished the ladoos within two days.
More ghee can be used to make the ladoo , if you wish to store for more days , skip the milk.
