Rawa(Semolina) balls

A quick and easy snack recipe that can be prepared any day with simple ingredients that are always available in your kitchen. The suji/rawa balls are soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. It has a grainy coarse texture because of the semolina and can be considered analogous to a chewy kind of muffin. It has a slight tint of cardamom so it goes perfectly with your evening tea.

  • Rawa/suji/semolina – 1 cup
  • Egg – 1
  • Sugar – 3-4 teaspoons
  • Cardamom powder – a pinch
  • Oil


  1. Beat the egg and add it to 1 cup of rawa. Mix well.
  2. Add sugar and cardamom powder and continue to mix untill soft.
  3. Scoop a small spoonful of the above mixture and pour into hot oil and deep fry.


  1. The mix shouldn’t be too runny nor it be too dry. You should be able to scoop it up using a spoon. 
  2. Keep the heat on low-medium or else the balls would burn on the outside and not cook on the inside. 
  3. You could fry these in an unniappam pan to get nicely shaped balls (as in pic) using very little oil(just a drop for one ball). make sure you cover it with a lid and cook it on low flame.
