Cool the sweet down for about 10-15 minutes.
Once it cools down, take small portions of the mixture in your hands, make round balls in the shape of a laddu.

1.Roasting of sooji is very important to make aromatic rava ladoo.
2.Cooling the mixture is necessary as we can't take the mixture in our hands when the sweet mixture is hot. Cool the mixture and make laddus.
