Sugar2 Cups
Ghee3/4 Cup

Cashews10
SaltA pinch

Mohan Laadoo


Method:
  1. Take the rawa(Semolina) in a bowl along with a pinch of salt and mix well


  2. Add water little by little and make a thick dough like we do it for chapati. Leave the dough covered in a damp cloth or we can close the bowl using a plate and leave it for 10 minutes


  3. After 10 minutes, again press and kead the dough once and make small balls of out of the dough like we do it for poori


  4. Using the roller, make small poori out of a ball as shown in the picture below. The poori should be thin.


  5. Repeat the above steps for the rest of the dough balls. Meanwhile heat a kadai or a heavy bottomed pan and add oil


  6. Test the hotness of the oil and if it is enough to fry the pooris then slowly drop the poori one by one and fry it in a medium heat. The poori should not be fluffy rather it should be crispy. So when the poori starts to fluff in the hot oil, press it with a spatula and make it flat.


  7. Repeat the above steps for the rest of the pooris and allow it to cool off


  8. Break the pooris and take this in a mixer and grind it to a nice powder to the maximum extent. Though we grind it nicely, sometimes it will be coarse because of the nature of semolina. But try it to the maximum to get a soft and nice powder. Take this ground semolina powder in a bowl


  9. Take the sugar and cardamom in a mixer and grind it to a nice powder 


  10. Once the sugar is ground to powder, add the powdered semolina and grind it to once to mix well with the sugar


  11. Take the semolina-sugar powder in a big bowl or a heavy bottomed pan. In a kadai, heat the ghee and add broken cashew and fry it till it turns golden brown color


  12. Add the ghee to the semolina-sugar powder and mix well with the spatula. The hot ghee will melts the sugar. Make lemon size balls out of the laadoo mixture


  13. The Enticing and delightful Mohan Laadoo is ready to serve.
