Cook Time: Under 10 mins
Source:Adapted from Cooks Joy
Yields 15 medium size ladoos
What You Need?
Sesame Seeds 1.5 cups
Peanuts 1 cup
Jaggery 1.5 cups
Cardamom 2 pods shelled
How To Make It?
Dry roast the sesame seeds until light brown and aromatic in a skillet.
Similarly, roast the peanuts on a low flame until crunchy.
Once done, let them cool.
Grind the peanuts along with the jaggery in a blender to a smooth powder.
Add the roasted sesame seeds and cardamom pods to this and blend again.
Once done, start shaping them into round balls by greasing your hand a little.
You dont need milk or ghee for this as the oil in the peanuts and sesame will work as a binding agent.
In case you mixture doesnt come together, add about 2 tbsp of milk and then roll them into ladoos.
And if you use milk, refrigerate them in an air tight container.
Once done with all the ladoos, start devouring. What are you waiting for??
