Cook's Hideout: Oats Rava Laddoo

March 14, 2015

Oats Rava Laddoo

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.

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
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.
  • Slowly add the warm milk to the mixture and make laddoos. Store in an airtight container.
