These Semolina laddos are so easy to make; you can rustle them up just before Diwali. I deliberately avoided ghee in this recipe, because all Diwali sweets contain ghee, the staple in making Indian sweets.
This whole process takes less than 15mins. You can double up the amount and make a larger quantity and store in the fridge for a couple of days ahead of Diwali.
I added tuti fruiti to give it a cheerful festive look and to make them stand out from other usual sweets. Also, kids will love the colourful look and the dainty sweetness of tuti fruiti along with the creamy taste of the laddoos. In place of tuti fruiti, you can add butter roasted cashews, almonds or sultanas.
Wish you all a very happy Diwali!
