Rave Unde / Semolina Sweet Balls

Sweet Semolina/Rava Unde

Rave - 1 cup (Preferably chiroti/very fine semolina)
Sugar - 1 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup or as required
Coconut - 1/2 cup (Preferably dry)
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Dry fruits and nuts - 1/2 cup (or as desired) - cut into small pieces
Saffron - 5-6 strands (Optional)
Cardamon powder - 1 tsp

1) Boil milk along with the saffron strands and keep aside.
2) Take a non-stick pan, and add 2 tsp of ghee and roast the dry fruits and nuts till they turn golden brown, if you are adding raisins wait till they puff up.
3) Once done, immediately add rava/semolina and roast till it spreads good aroma and its turning golden brown. (Roast rava on low flame to avoid burning)
4) Now, add sugar and mix well and add 3 tsp of milk and coconut and mix well.
5) At this stage add cardamon powder, the remaining ghee and gently mix all the ingredients together.
6) Now, take a large mixing bowl, and pour this mixture and wait for it to cool.
7) Once the temperature is just nice for you to handle it, take small portions of rava and add 2 tsp of milk and mix the rava with the milk and make lemon sized balls (Size is up to you) and keep them in a open plate.
8) Repeat this for the rest of the mixture but adding enough milk to mould the rava into balls.

1) Using lot of milk makes moulding easy, but it gets dried late and gets hard.   
2) Use milk just nice to mould the rava into a ball.
3) Once the balls/under dry, they are dry outside and soft inside and taste really yummy.
