Diwali special – rava laddoos

Years after I moved out of home, I am now at the start of my journey as a mother..creating warm memories for my daughter to cherish..just the way my family did for me

Prepared these two delicious treats for the first time my self..thanks to precise instructions from mom, they turned out pretty well! (Rava laddoos are my absolute favourite – juicy, lightly sweetened little treats..just down one every time I pass the kitchen!)

So happy diwali everyone! I hope you cherish the joy and hope all year through!
