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.
3.One can even replace fresh coconut with desiccated coconut or we can also make rava ladoo without coconut.
