Sooji Ladoo

Diwali preparations are still going on in every household, from cleaning to making sweets, preparing lovely snacks…This year Diwali falls on Oct 23rd which is a weekday, so the festivities are not going to be elaborate specially in the US.  There will be an evening Puja along with some yummy food and sweets.

I have been trying to make quick and easy sweets everyday so it is not too much to do in day.  My mom makes these sooji ladoo which comes out so yummy and are easy to make. So when I was thinking about another sweet, these came to my mind.  Made a phone call and got the recipe for Mom and tried them.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sooji (semolina)
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tbsp butter
  • 4-5 tbsp of milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar or little less  (if you like it less sweet)
  • 2-3 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • raisins to garnish

Directions:

In a pan or kadhai, put and sooji and butter.  Roast it on a medium heat, stirring continuously until you get that sweet aroma.  You don't want to brown the sooji too much. It will be slightly tinted.

Now add the sugar and mix well. Cook for a few minutes to melt the sugar.  Add desiccated coconut or any nuts you want to add this time.  Add the milk and mix well.  Turn the gas off for it to cool down.

After it cools down enough to handle, take a portion in your hands and give them a shape of ladoos.  Garnish with a raisin on top.  Your yummy ladoos are ready.
