1.Heat 2 tsp of ghee in a kadai, roast cashew nuts and raisins.
2.Roast the coconut. Keep aside.

4.In a bowl take all the roasted Rava, Nuts, Coconut and add the Cardamom powder.
5.Then add the sugar. Mix well.Then slowly add the warm milk into the bowl. Check if you are able to gather as balls. When you find that milk added is enough to get you laddos, transfer it back to the kadai and cook in sim for 2 mins. Mix well and then cover it and let it rest for 2 mins. Then immediately make balls or laddoos.
PS.I followed srivalli recipe.But when i started making the balls milk was not enough so i sprinkled 4-5 tbsp of hot milk and made the ladoos.
