Til Laddoo


1 cup white Sesame seeds
1 cup jaggery
½ cup raw peanuts roasted
¼ cup canna daal
¼ cup ghee or clarified butter
½ tsp cardamom powder


Roast the sesame seeds and peanuts separately. Keep aside for cooling. After the peanuts are cold, skin it and crush them in a mortar and pestle into big pieces. Heat the ghee in a vessel. When its hot, add the jaggery. The jaggery will liquefy and start to foam and froth. Remove the vessel from heat source and add the sesame seeds, crushed peanuts, roasted channa daal and cardamom powder. Mix well and keep stirring. Using a little ghee to coat your hands take a piece of the warm mixture and form very small balls/ladoos. Store in a container.
