Roast the rava on low flame,do not let them get burnt.

Be careful while adding milk because too much milk will make the rava laddu soggy.

Before adding the milk make sure the roasted mixture is hot and then add the milk.If the mixture is hot it helps in binding them together and easy for you to make the laddus.

While making laddus give good pressure to bind them together and let it set for 30 mins.
