So how is everyone doing?...Is everyone busy with the holidays coming up?...
We went around San Jose and San Francisco.. Christmas tree watching or should I say beautiful lights around the city watching...:)
This anyway wasn't very much possible back in the east coast, where it used to be cold and snowy sometimes that making a trip to downtown seemed as big hassle than enjoyment. That's what is different here...My plants are still sitting on the deck and its December!!...well I would have bought them in back in the east coast, but here tho it does get cold in the nights, morning sun is much warmer than in the east coast...
OK this post is becoming more like a comparison contest, let me stop here :)
Here is one of the easiest and flavourful ladoo you can make. Almost all the ingredients will be found in an Indian pantry and so its not at all difficult to put it together.
And who doesn't like the round balls of yummy goodness! :)
These are so easy and instant to make that you should really think about making them to potluck or a party which came upon you as a pouncer :). Haha...no really they are so easy to make.
1 cup rava
1 cup powdered dry coconut
1 cup sugar
pinch of elaichi
1 tbsp cashew
1 tbsp raisins
4 tbsp of ghee
Dry roast the rava in a open pan, till it starts to turn color. Remove from heat and keep aside.
In one tbsp of ghee, brown the cashews and raisins and keep aside.
On very low heat, combine the dry coconut, sugar, elaichi and roasted rava along with the remaining ghee. Mix till you feel the sugar is starting to melt. This should take like 5 minutes.
Add in the cashews and raisins.
While it is still hot, starting making ladoos, by rubbing tiny amount if ghee on your palm so that the mixture won't stick to you.
This can be stored for up to 10 days in an air tight container.
