Rava and Coconut Ladoo/Rava and Coconut Laddu

Yields 19 Balls
Rava (coarse) - 1 cup (250 ml cup)
Coconut - 1 cup, scrapped
Sugar - 1 cup
Cashews - 2 tbspns. chopped
Cardamom - 1/4 tsp, powdered
Ghee - 2 tsps
Milk - 1/4 cup + 2 tbspns

Add the ghee in a pan and roast the cashews on low heat until golden brown. Keep it separate. In the same pan roast the rava until you get a nice aroma ( until it starts turning golden brown ). Remove the rava from the pan and keep it aside. In the same pan add the scrapped coconut and fry for few minutes approximately 2-3 minutes. Now add the rava to the toasted coconut and mix it until the mixture is well blended. Now add the sugar and mix it well with the rava, coconut mixture. Add the roasted cashews. Mix everything well for a minute or until the sugar starts to melt. Switch off the stove. Let it cool approximately for 2-3 minutes. Now add the milk little by little until you are able to hold the mixture and shape into balls. Make equal sized balls of the mixture. If you are not able to shape into balls, heat the mixture for a minute and sprinkle some more milk. 
Let the balls cool completely. Store them into air tight containers.
