Rava(semolina) Coconut Ladoo

Ladoo is a delectable Indian dessert made with variety of flours and nuts. Some time back i visited a friend's place and was complaining about my daughter not eating her meals well, and after some time she offered her Semolina coconut ladoo's, Unbelievably she ate all of it :) the very next thing i did after coming home was made those for my daughter.
I have never made any kind of ladoos before and this is my first attempt at making these.

Rava(semolina) Coconut Ladoo
Rava / Semolina - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 cup
Milk - 1/4th cup
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Raisins - a handful
Grated fresh coconut/Dry coconut - 1/2 cup
Pour ghee in a pan and raisins until till golden brown color and keep aside. Roast the semolina in the remaining ghee, Once u smell the semolina being cooked ( basically the raw smell should go)add the grated coconut also and saute for few minutes. Add sugar and the turn the heat off.
Cool it ( warm enough to mold) and make this mixture into small round balls it by pressing gently with your hand. Use milk spoon by spoon in case u cant form balls.
Keep in airtight dry container.
