Rava Mawa Coconut Laddoo

Rava Mawa coconut LaddooIngredients

1 cup rava

1 cup mava

1/2 cup dry dessicated coconut (or coconut milk powder)

1 1/2 cup confectionery sugar or powdered sugar

3 tbsp ghee

1/4 cup milk

1/2 tsp cardamom powder

dry nuts and raisins

How to make

In a thick bottomed pan add 2 tbsp ghee and roast the rava on medium heat until it turns light pink in color. Add the coconut and mix it well. Reduce the heat if necessary.

Reduce to low heat and add the mawa and mix well until there are no lumps of mawa. Add 1 tbsp ghee and continue to mix for about 5 minutes. If the heat is more, the mawa tends to stick and burn, so mix it under low heat.

Take the pan off the heat and add the sugar.

Warm up the milk and sprinkle 2 tbsp of milk and mix well.

Add the dry nuts and raisins and make laddoos with the mixture. Add a little milk if the mixture is too dry to make laddoos.

LAS VEGAS (AP) Police were called after hundreds of job seekers on Thursday flooded a board meeting for the new Oakland Raiders stadium in Las Vegas and turned irate when they discovered they'd been had by a Amari Cooper Jerseys hoax.A flyer promoting "pre-job recruitment sign-ups" attracted more than 700 people to a regularly scheduled meeting of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board.Tensions flared among some attendees after officials explained there were no jobs as of yet on the $1.9 billion project, which has many steps Bruce Irvin Jerseys that must be completed before construction can begin.Las Vegas police closed off access to the county building's parking Charles Woodson Jerseys lots after the size of the crowd ballooned.Board chairman Steve Hill denounced the flyer after the meeting, saying, "If folks were brought to the meeting under a false pretense, I think that's too bad, that obviously shouldn't happen."But he added that the attendance "exhibits a real Latavius Murray Jerseys desire on the part of a number of people in the community to go to work."The fake flyer specifically targeted black men and women and advertised for union and non-union positions.Raiders executives and members of the group that the team has assembled to carry out the project spoke at Thursday's meeting and said they are working on an agreement that will address minority hiring and reaffirmed that they will meet a state-mandated 15 percent contracting of small businesses."The Raiders take this obligation very seriously," Raiders Executive Vice President Dan Ventrelle said of the so-called community benefits plan, which will outline the hiring of a diverse workforce. "We embrace working within the outline of the legislation and meeting all of its requirements."The board is expected to discuss the plan at its August meeting, as well as an agreement that would allow the football team of Khalil Mack Jerseys the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to use the 65,000-seat stadium that will be built near the Las Vegas Strip. The board must approve those two and other documents before any ground breaking. The team wants to play in Sin City starting in 2020.Guests of hotels and other lodging facilities in the Las Vegas area are contributing $750 million through a room tax increase. On Thursday, the board learned the tax increase yielded more than $13.1 million from March through May. That's 16 percent ahead of projections.The team and the NFL are expected to contribute $500 million to the project. In addition, the team has secured a $650 million loan from Bank of America to cover the rest of the project's cost.
