Easy Rava Laddu recipe made without milk. Its made with sooji and coconut. Its a South Indian Tamilnadu style recipe. With step by step pictures. Measurements Used – 1 cup = 250ml


  • 1 Cup Chiroti Rava / Sooji
  • 1 Cup granulated Sugar, powdered in a mixie
  • 1/2 Cup fresh shredded Coconut
  • 3 Cardamoms, powdered fine
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Cashewnuts, chopped fine
  • 1 Tablespoon Chironji Seeds (saara paruppu)
  • 1 Tablespoon raisins
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Heat ghee in a pan and add in the cashew nuts and chironji seeds. Fry till the cashew nuts are lightly brown.
  2. Add in the raisins and the freshly shredded coconut. Fry for a minute until the coconut is lightly brown.
  3. Now, add in the sooji rava and fry for 10 minutes. The rava is fried and done when a nice nutty smell fills the kitchen and the rava is very slightly brown. It will roughly take about 10 minutes.
  4. Add in the powdered sugar and mix well for 30-40 seconds. Switch off the flame.
  5. Add in 1/4 cup of boiling hot water to the mixture and mix well to combine. Add more water if the mixture is crumbly. Dont add all of the 1/2 cup water at once. Wait for 2-3 minutes and form laddus the size you prefer. If the laddus crumble in your hand, add a couple of tablespoon of hot water to loosen the mixture.
  6. Wait for the laddus to completely cool. Store the laddus in a jar with a lid. The laddus will last for 2 days at room temperature.
