Semolina balls are commonly known as rava laddu in India. This is a popular sweet made during festivals. I mixed some pitted dates with semolina to make this sweet balls.

This is one of the common sweets in India. This is a quick and easy sweet you can make. You can also add grated coconut, cashews and raisins if you wish.

10 dates pitted and chopped
1 cup semolina flour

5 tbsp ghee
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 cup hot milk

Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan. Fry the chopped dates in hot ghee for 1 minute. Then transfer it to a bowl. Keep aside.

In the same pan, heat the remaining ghee. Add the semolina flour and roast for 5 minutes on low to medium flame. Stir continuously to roast the flour evenly.

The sweet balls are ready. Serve them after at least 1 hour. The balls will be slightly glazed since they are cooked in sugar.

You can store the balls in an air tight container for about 5 days.
