Here is a recipe of Rawa ladoos loaded with dry fruits and shaped into modaks using a modak mould.

Thanks Valerie , for giving me this tip to use a modak mould to form these ladoos ,a time saver.


300 gms fine semolina

40 gms almonds

25 gms unsalted pistachio

100 gm (deseed ) dates , finely chopped

50 gms walnuts

5 tbsp hot melted ghee

1and 1/2 tsp cardamom powder

1/3 cup water

1 cup sugar


Dry roast the almonds , pistachios, walnuts

Allow to cool and powder it in a dry grinder.

Dry roast the fine semolina on low flame ,when almost done add a tbsp of ghee reserving 4 tbsp for later .Stir fry the semolina in this 1 tbsp ghee on low flame.

Remove , once lukewarm dry grind with the finely chopped dates.

Mix the ground dry fruit powder mix and ground semolina and dates mix together.

To a vessel add 1 cup sugar and 1/3 cup water

keep stirring till it comes to one thread consistency.( touch your two fingers to the sugar syrup, then release ,once releasing it will show one thread , its done)

Add the semolina and dry fruit mixture to this syrup. Mix well on low flame.

Remove from heat .

Add the cardamom powder and mix

Once warm and ready to handle add 4 tbsp hot melted ghee to this mixture and mix well.

using a aluminium modak mould , stuff this mixture and press well , release , and modaks are done .

for ladoos just form into balls ,if finding a bit tough add in a tbsp of hot ghee till you are able to form.
