How to make Rava Appalu
Add water to a vessel and place over medium flame. Let it boil and then, add ghee in it. After a minute or two, add semolina and cardamom powder in it. Keep stirring to avoid lumps. Put sugar and mix everything well. Keep the flame at a low setting and let the mixture become thick. Once, the consistency has thickened, turn off the flame and cover the vessel with a lid and keep aside for 5 minutes.
Let the mixture cool down a little and then, grease your palms with a little ghee and make small balls out of it. Make sure that the balls are smooth and have no cracks in it.
Heat ghee in a deep pan over medium flame and shallow fry the rava balls till they turn golden in colour. Take out on a tissue paper to soak excess ghee and serve warm!
