100th Post : Happy Diwali with sooji nadiya ladoos

Happy Diwali everyone. Hope you have a great and lovely year ahead, filled with health, wealth and happiness. I know I disappeared since months, but didn't want to not post for diwali! And yes it is double celebration time - my 100th post! Its nearly 3 years since I started and I am very happy to have reached this milestone. I couldn't do it without your support! Enjoy these simple and easy sooji-naadia ladoos or rawa-naariyal laddoos.


1/2 cup lightly roasted rawa or sooji
2 1/2 cups of fresh coconut
1 can of condensed milk (400 gm)
1/2 tea spoon of cardamom powder
handful of raisins

How To

Take a non stick pan and dry roast the sooji for 2-3 minutes on low fire, until it starts changing color. Take out of pan and keep aside.
Take the fresh grated coconut and again dry roast for 5-7 minutes on low heat. Once the wetness of the coconut reduces, remove about 1/2 cup of coconut and keep aside.
Add the condensed milk and keep mixing well to the rest of the coconut in the pan on low fire.
The misture forms a lump in 4-5 min. Add cardamom powder and raisins and remove from heat.
Make balls while still warm, roll in coconut flakes and keep aside. Keep in the refrigerator and enjoy for a week.
