Sesame (Til) Ladoos recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Sesame Seeds
  • ¾ cup Jaggery (I grated it)
  • ½ cup Desiccated coconut (I used dry coconut powder since I only had that on hand)
  • 2 tbsp Cashews broken
  • ½ tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 tbsp Melted Ghee (optional)

Cooking Instructions

Dry roast the sesame seeds in a non stick pan

until brown.

Add rest of the ingredients except Ghee and cashews.

Grind it into a fine powder. You will find that the oil from the seeds is enough to bind the powder into ladoos.

Alternatively, I roasted the cashews pieces in ghee since I wanted the flavor and little bit of richness.

Once the cashews browned, I added them to the ground sesame-jaggery mixture in a bowl and gave it a quick mix.

While hot, shape them quickly into balls. You can enjoy them simply as powder too.

Shape all of them likewise. I think I got around 8-10 ladoos.
