Dussehra--whats cooking in your kitchen?

Starting today I am planning on making some neivedyam (whats it called in Hindi?) for Ma Durga. What are your plans? Here is my menu for the week.

It would be great if anyone can join me in this . I will post the picture as and when I make it.

Today: Rava Ladoo; this should take about 20 mins...THAT'S ALL! This would make about 6-8 medium ladoos.

Rava/suji: 1 cup
Sugar: 1/4 to 1/2 cup (according to taste)
Cashew nuts: handful
kishmish/raisins: handful
ghee/clarified butter: 1/4 cup
Milk- 3 tbsp

Method: Heat 3 tbsp ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and roast cashews until golden brown. Transfer these to a plate and roast raisins and keep that aside.

In the same pan roast the suji until nice aroma comes (about 5-8 mins). Now add sugar, milk and ghee and stir. Also add milk and the dry fruits, stir and remove from heat.
Once this cools down a bit, fold the ladoos.

Tomorrow: Coconut ladoos with condensed milk. Will post the recipe tomorrow morning.

im trying to stay off any and all kinds of refined sugars. however i must say rava laddus have always been my fav. esp the ones that are crunchy crumbly and melt and dont have the reminder of added milk - maharashtrians do a freaky good job at making those! used to be in the diwali plate that used to come to our place from the neighbors.

Dolly, is the maharastrian recipe any different from what I have posted? If yes, let me know and i will try that way. I have been having the ladoos the way I mentioned it for a ong time and it would be nice to have something different.

Premi...I have one doubt...why do you always post pictures of recipes taken from net? I have never seen anything which was done by you. You seem to be picking the best of pictures from internet. why?

too much of work... taking pictures, downloading from camera ...uploading to imgur posting here.

and most of the time I make things just for myself and for those the stuff I use is not in definite quantity. like sugar can be more, ghee in place of oil, cashewnuts in place of peanuts. my pictures are all to inspire you guys to try urself.

I just enjoy cooking and grilling... lazy in showing off.

And once I did attach picture of daal laddus I made, which were awesome.

Dolly, I called my grand ma this morning regarding this (What will I do without her!!). She told me the below:

  • Roast the sooji and grind it until its smooth.
  • Powder the sugar until smooth
  • Mix the sooji, sugar and a little finely ground cardamom powder.
  • Heat a little ghee and fry the dry fruits and keep them aside.
  • In the same pan, heat the remaining ghee until very hot and mix the sooji/sugar mixture. Also add the dry fruits.
  • Switch off the stove and fold the ladoos when the mixture is still hot. She was saying you might need to use a little more ghee.
  • Set the ladoos aside for at least 30 mins before digging in. This will prevent the ladoos from breaking.
Since no milk is used, you can even store this for as long as 2 months. The only hard thing is folding the ladoos when its hot.

Hope this helps.

If its too much work downloading and all and you are too lazy (to showoff, like you put it) then I dont have a problem with it.

The reason I asked you in the first place is because you are picking up picture taken from a blog/link without the blog owners permission and you are not even giving a link as to where you got it from.
People who do take pictures and post them put some effort into it; as a token of appreciation for taking their picture, you could at least link to their blog...perhaps something to think about.

If its too much work even to link a blog (or mention where its from), then there is nothing I can say or do . Its just a thought.

OK imgur doest work here at work. How should I paste this picture?

I could not make Rava ladoo as hubby was requesting for coconut ladoos. Here it is; it came out OK. I would have liked a little more sweet but thats OK. It took me practically 10 mins for 10 ladoos.

Ingredients:
Coconut: 1 cup shredded or even dessicated coconut will do.
Condensed milk: 1/4 to 1/2 cup (I used 1/4)

Heat a pan and roast the coconut for 2 mins. Add the condensed milk and stir until they are mixed properly. Remove from heat and fold the ladoos.
Roll them over dessicated coconut for a better look and texture.

If its too much work even to link a blog (or mention where its from), then there is nothing I can say or do . Its just a thought.

I search for pictures on google and I post links to the picture with img tag. If any picture is available on internet, anybody can use it with its original path as long as they are not claiming that is their own creation.

so posting the link to blog.... I dont even go to blogs.

and yes taking pictures and downloading uploading is too much work for me.. you wont believe I have some 1000 pictures in my camera's sd card from this summer waiting to be downloaded. ........ some day.

columbus day ...if I wont plan anything for that weekend.
