Oats Rava Laddoo

By Pavani @napavani
Traditional Rava laddoo gets a slightly healthy makeover with the addition of ground oats in this recipe. Saw this being made on a Telugu cooking show couple of days ago and then tried it today.
Oats are lightly roasted and ground. They are then added to the regular rava laddoo ingredients -- rava/ semolina, sugar, dry grated coconut and dry fruits. Melted ghee and warm milk act as glue to hold these laddoos together.
Oats Rava Laddoo These tasted exactly like the regular rava laddoos. My 2 year loved them (she loves anything with nuts & raisins in it), but I was surprised that my super picky son also liked them. They are quick and very easy to make -- takes about 15 minutes to make the entire batch. Also these are goof-proof, especially for people like me who are prone to screw up consistency of sugar syrup, this is the perfect recipe :-)
Oats Rava Laddoo Ingredients: Rolled Oats - 1cup Semolina/ Rava - 1cup Sugar - 1cup
Dry grated coconut - ¼cup  Ghee/ Clarified butter - 3~4tbsp Cashews, Raisins, Almonds - 1tbsp each Ground Cardamom - ½tsp
Milk - 2~3tbsp, warmed
  • Dry roast oats in a pan until lightly browned. Remove from the pan and let cool. Grind to a fine powder.
  • Dry roast the grated coconut until light brown, about 2~3 minutes. Make sure that the coconut does not burn.
  • Melt 1tbsp ghee in the same pan. Add the semolina and fry till the color changes from white to golden. Remove into a mixing bowl, cool slightly.
  • In the same pan, melt 1tbsp ghee and fry the nuts until golden brown. 
  • To the mixing bowl with rava/ semolina, add the fried nuts, oats powder, sugar, cardamom and mix well. 
  • Stir in the remaining 1~2tbsp melted ghee and mix to combine.
