Rawa Naral Strawberry Laddoo

Iam not a big fan of sweets and so is my husband:-)
I had stocked up semolina for some reason(may be for rava upma)...saw the packs and thought..why not try making some sweet for a change?
I have never tried making anything other than payasam/kheer.So,i made this sweet and it came out pretty well(atleast in my terms) :-).
This is a common sweet in the Laddoo
I have just added strawberries and the outcome was delightful.


3-4 tablespoon of Ghee
2 cups of Semolina(rawa)
8 Cashewnuts broken into small pieces pieces
1 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon cardomom powder
1/2 cup of grated coconut
3-4 strawberries(cut them into into small pieces)

Heat ghee in a skillet,fry the semolina on low heat and once it starts changing to golden colour add grated coconut,cardamom powder and cashewnuts.Mix well and fry for 2-3 more mins.
Now to make sugar syrup,cook sugar with half cup of water and stir till sugar dissolves.Increase heat and bring the syrup to a boil.Now add the syrup to the semolina mixture. Then,add the strawberry pieces and mix well.Remove it from fire and cover with a lid.
After 15 mins stir the mixture and allow it to cool.Divide mixture and shape them into laddoos.

Thanks Shubha.Make sure you put them in the fridge later.Any fruit am sure would give a different flavour.I chose Strawberry because since i thought it has a tangy flavour.konjam pulipa irukum la..thats why :-)
