  • Do not roast semolina/rava on high heat as it will get easily burnt. 
  • If using fresh coconut, dry roast in a pan and then add.
  • You can increase the amount of sugar if you want it sweeter. Here, I have used rava and sugar in 1:3/4 ratio, make it 1:1 to increase sweetness.
  • You can add more milk while shaping the ladooss if you feel the ladoos are too dry and they do not hold together.
  • You can substitute milk with ghee while forming the ladoo shape. This gives more flavour and aroma but it will be high in calories. 
  • You can also include raisins and any other nuts of your choice.
