1.5 Cup White Sesame
Seeds (Til)
1.5 Cup Jaggery (Gud / Gur)Please make sure the jaggery(Gud) is clean or free from any dirt/other

make ladoo/sweets
Method:
  • In a nonstick wok, roast sesame seeds (Til) on a medium
    flame till they are slightly toasted/golden in color (2mins) and Keep aside in a bowl (While roasting them, please keep stirring continuously as they tend to burn quickly).
  • Now lightly roast the dry fruits* for 2-3 minutes to give them a crunchier taste and toasted flavor and keep aside in the same bowl as roasted sesame seeds. (*Incase using raisins or any dry berry – please don’t roast them, simply mix them into the bowl).
  • In the same wok over medium flame, now add ½ water, jaggery and stir to make a smooth paste (takes about 3-4 minutes).
  • While the jaggery is still cooking, add butter/ghee and let it bubble for 1 more min.
  • Now add cardamom powder, roasted sesame seeds, dry fruit and give it a thorough mix.
  • Stir everything together for 2 minutes over low flame and then turn off the heat.
  • Rub oil in both hands and while the mixture is still warm to touch, make ladoo/ladoo. (I made 20 medium size ladoo)
  • Transfer to Serving dish and serve fresh.
  • These can be stored in a cool dry place or in fridge for upto a month.
