We have made it a point nowadays to make prasadam for poornima at the center. This way we get to know new recipes, we enjoy karma yoga, sharing and caring, unlike only single person ending up doing all the work. Last time we made paneer peta laddoo which was a big hit.
Today we tried out rava laddoo for poornima prasadam and it came out superb. Thought of sharing the recipe with you.
Quantity mentioned in the recipe is to make around 40-45 big laddoos or around 60-65 medium to small laddoos.
