Rava Ladoo

Last two  months I had been so lazy about my blogging. I was thinking a way to get  past this laziness somehow  when Radhika of Tickling Palates announced the "Blog Hop Wednesday" event. I signed up immedatly and I am happy I did that. How it works is that we bloggers  are grouped and paired, and we visit each other's space to try out new recipes and blog about our experience on alternate Wednesdays. What a nice way to better ourselves as cooks and make friends; right? Thank you Radhika for this wonderful idea. This week I was paired with Suchitra of Simple Indian Food- An Easy Cooking Blog . She has a wide array of dishes for me to choose from. As I was having visitors and short of time, I tried this rava ladoo which she had mentioned can be done in five minutes flat. She was so right! It was an easy and tasty dessert which was thoroughly enjoyed by my family and friends. I did change the quantities a little to suit our taste buds though. To know what other blog hoppers are cooking drop in here
