Sesame Ladoo

Let me begin the new year with something sweet to share :) The below recipe is one of my very good friends recipe. Well, perhaps quite a lot of you know how to make this but never has this tasted better than when she used to make! She is long gone now but her perfect recipe remains for all of us to enjoy. I could never understand how a simple recipe like this can taste so good. 

Sesame seeds: 2 cups
Jaggery: 1 cup
Cardamom powder: 1 tsp

  • Roast the sesame seeds until they change color to brown. 
  • In a mixer grinder, grind the sesame seeds and jaggery together and add cardamom powder. You dont have to grind it fine, it will taste good even when coarsely done. 
  • Take the mixture in a bowl and add a little water to the side and make a ladoo. You can substitute water with ghee.
  • Like wise, make all the ladoos.
