FIRST GOKULA ASTAMI CELEBRATION AND RAVA LADOO

Gokulashtami or Janmashtami or Sri Krishna Jayanti , marks the birthday of Lord Sri Krishna. It is observed on the astami thithi , the eighth day of the dark half , when there is rohini nakshathiram . I celebrated this for the first time .
Neivaidhyam includes Butter , Milk , Fresh Curd , Sundal , Rava Ladoo and Fruit .

RAVA LADOO :



INGREDIENTS :
Rava - 2 cups
Sugar -- 1/2 cup or as per your taste
Lukewarm Milk - as per requirement
Ghee - 2 tbsps
Cashews , Raisins and elachi - few numbers
METHOD OF PREPARATION :
1) Roast Rava with a tbsp of ghee till the flavour rules out.
2) Transfer it to a big plate and allow it to cool . Meanwhile , ghee roast cashews , raisins and elachi .
3) Add sugar to rava and mix it well , then followed by adding cahews to it . Add milk little by little to rava and make small balls of it .

Ladoo goes to Nithu's Celebrate Sweets - Ladoo event , initially started by Nivedita .
