But either approach will do the job.

19.  Semolina Bites

Rava Laddu is a traditional Indian dessert that is formed into small round balls and is made by combining semolina flour, nuts, sugar, and ghee. The balls are then moulded into balls.

Pouring hot ghee over the flour is very crucial since it makes the flour easier to bind together. Begin with the smallest amount of ghee possible, and only add more if the mixture is really difficult to mold. When the flour mixture is still warm, you need to work as quickly as possible. Once the flour mixture has cooled down, it will be more difficult to do.
