Sorakkai/Bottle Gourd Rava Ladoo Repost!!!

I usually make Rava Ladoo, this time tried with Sorakkai/Bottle Gourd. Sometime back this was showed on TV and tried by my friend.  It was different, tasty and moist.

Sorakkai/Bottle Gourd - 1/2 cup
Rava - 2 cups
Sugar - 1 1/2 cup(as per taste)
Elachi/Cardamom - powder of 2 pods
Ghee - 1 tspn + little more
Cashews/Pistachoes - few
Milk - 1 to 2 tspns

Preparation Method
Grate Sorakkai and squeeze just little water but not fully. Keep it aside.

Heat a thick bottom kadai, add 1/2 tspn ghee, add rava and roast till its slightly brown and gets good aroma. Transfer it to a wide vessel. Add sugar, press and mix well with a spoon.

In the same pan, add 1/2 tspn ghee, add grated sorakkai saute till the raw smell goes. Add this to the rava mixture.

In the same pan, add little ghee and fry chopped nuts till brown. Add this also to the mixture.

Now mix everything finely with a spoon.

Sprinkle little milk as sorakkai is little moist and mix to a soft dough by hand.

Take lemon size of the mix to get round shape.

Store it in an air tight container and enjoy. This will be perfect to eat next day or rests for a 2 -3 hrs. Its good to prepare for guests and festivals.
