Dear Sandhya, Taking liberty to answer your query. Hope you find it useful. According to me your sugar/water mixture must have developed strings. Immediately after one boil you should add the semoline. This could be the reason.

Hey Madhura, I tried this Rava ladoo , it came out good but they dint retain the ladoo round shape. I allowed the rava to rest in the sugar syrup for 5 hrs so that it gets soaked up and when I made the ladoo they weren't round and neither did it become little hard and retain shape (like how rava ladoo retains its shape and hardens little) ...... wat could be wrong???
