Five Favourites Of Sri Krishna For Janmaashtami - Carrot Rawa Laddu - Carrot And Semolina Sweet Balls

  
CARROT RAWA LADDU

Children like all types of laddus. It is easy for them  to hold the laddus in their tiny cupped palms and relish the sweet bite by bite. Rawa laddu is a traditional sweet prepared in all South Indian homes.
Carrot Rawa Laddus are slightly different from the traditional ones.

                                                 


INGREDIENTS
Carrots - 2
Semolina - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 2 tsps
Cashew nuts - a few
Raisins - a few
Cardamom powder - 1 pinch
Warm milk - 1/4 cup
METHOD
1, Peel, dice and grind carrots with little water into a coarse paste.
2. Add water if necessary to make one cup and keep aside.
3.Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and fry the cashew nuts and raisins till they become golden in colour.
4.Add rawa and continue to roast till it gives out a pleasant aroma.
5. Remove the roasted ingredients to a plate.
6. Add the carrot paste and sugar to the same pan and cook till it reaches the soft ball stage.

                                                 

7. When the carrot syrup is sticky enough to bind the rawa, add the fried rawa and mix well.
8.Add cardamom powder, switch off flame and allow it to cool for a few minutes.

                                                 
9. Grease your palm with little ghee, sprinkle a teaspoon of warm milk to a small portion of the crumbly mixture and make a laddu.
10 . Continue sprinkling warm milk and make the laddus portion by portion while the mixture is still warm.

                                                  

Offer the Carrot Rawa Laddu to baby Krishna on His happy birthday and distribute the prasaadam to all the children.
