Tilache Ladoo ( Sweet Sesame Jaggery Balls )

Tilache Ladoo or Tilwale laddoo are a must during winter and usually are prepared in most Indian Kitchens during January on the occasion of Makara Sankranti or Pongal . The Gud (jaggery ) and Til (sesame ) provide the much needed heat in the winter. They give us energy and warmth. These laddoos are made along with small white sugary sweets called Halwa or Phutane in marathi .

 The jaggery used for these laddoo is a special variety called chikki gud and it is available freely at every grocery store especially in winter season.

 I made these laddoos for the SFC ( Sweet Fantasy Club ) a sweet event by a sweet friend Preeti Garg .





Ingredients :

2 cups ......................unpolished til (sesame )
1 n 1/2 cups ..............jaggery ( chikki gud )
1/2 cup....................roasted chana dal
1/2 cup..................roasted and skinned peanuts ( cut into pieces)
1/4 tsp..................coarsely ground cardamom powder
2 tbsp.................ghee


Method :

Dry roast til ( sesame) in a pan over low flame.

Add roasted peanut pieces and daal.

Also add cardamom powder and mix everything.

Now in the same pan add ghee and jaggery.

Heat till jaggery melts and becomes frothy.

Take a small teaspoonfull molten jaggery and drop it in cold water .

It should instantly form a hard ball .

This is a check to see if jaggery is ready to make laddoos.

Now add the above mixture in this jaggery and mix everything very well.

Apply ghee to your palms and make round balls while the mixture is still hot.

Cool them and store in airtight containers.
