How to make Rava Laddu
. Heat a large dry skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add the semolina, and toast, stirring constantly.
. Stir in the sugar and cardamom while toasting until light brown and fragrant, about 10 minutes.
. Heat a small amount of the ghee in a separate skillet over medium heat. Add the cashews, and cook until lightly toasted, about 10 minutes.
. Add the cashews to the semolina along with the remaining ghee.
. Gradually stir hot milk into the semolina until it is thick enough to pack into a ball.
. Remove from heat, and form palm-sized balls. Let cool and serve.
