Tried and tasted by Nivedita
As I said in earlier post, many recipes are common in whole India. Ladoo is one more recipe which is prepared everywhere. This til ladoo is the must food to make during Nagapanchami in North Karnataka.
Gujarat menu also has til ladoo in sweet section so here is my recipe for the same.
Til or Sesame seeds - 500 gm
Roast the sesame seeds on a low heat. Allow it cool and keep aside.
To make jaggery syrup, we need
Jaggery - same as Til(Measure in a cup, and take the same amount of jaggery)
Salt - a pinch
Water -1/4 cup or less
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Click Here to make the Jaggery syrup. But boil the syrup for few more minutes to make the syrup more thick.
Dalia powder - 1/4 cup
Dry coconut - 1/4 cup, grated
Nutmeg and cardamom powder 1 tsp
Take the sesame seeds in a big and wide plate.
Add dry coconut, Nut Meg powder and dalia powder to it. Mix it well and keep it ready.
Now you should be quick:
Put this syrup to the Sesame seeds plate. Spread it slowly so that the the sesame seeds gets the syrup evenly.
Now take a small quantity and make balls by mildly pressing with both the palms to give proper ball shape.
This will make around 30 ladoos.
Keep it to cool for sometime. Store it in a jar or box.
