2. Cool it and grind it in a mixer along with sugar,but don't let it become very fine.
3. If the ghee is solid, heat it to liquify it.
4. Fry cashewnuts in ghee.
4. Then using this ghee, make balls of the semolina-sugar mixture.
5. Add milk if required, but do not add too much of milk as it may make the ladoos too hard.

Variation: You may mix the cashewnut pieces with the semolina-sugar mixture and then make ladoos.
You may also add raisins,badam etc.
