» How to Make Til Laddu //
- In a pan, dry roast sesame seeds for 2-3 minutes on medium heat or until they change colour and release a nutty aroma. They would start crackling at this stage.
- Once done, transfer roasted sesame seeds on a plate and let it cool down.
- In a pan, add 1 tablespoon ghee, jaggery and cook on low heat until the jaggery starts to melt.
- Keep stirring constantly.
- Once the jaggery starts to melt, add 1 tablespoon ghee and keep stirring and cooking on low heat until the jaggery is entirely melted.
- Turn off the heat immediately. (Do not overcook, you just need cook till the jaggery is melted and there are no solid parts.)
- Next, add roasted sesame and mixing them together.
- Remove the mixture in a plate, and let it cool down for 2 minutes. Do not let the mixture cools down completely or else it will be hard to make balls.
- Grease your palms and then wet your palms before making balls. This would prevent sticking mixture on your hands and it won't burn your hands.
- Start making small balls with the mixture by rolling it between your palms till smooth.
- Let them cool completely before storing or eating. Once the Laddus are cooled, they are ready to eat.
- Til laddu are ready to be served.
- Store the til (sesame) laddus in an an airtight container for up to 1 month.
- Traditional laddus only have jaggery and sesame seeds, but if you want you can also add some powdered roasted peanuts to this til Laddu
- Cardamom powder can also be added to this laddu mixture.
- Feel free to add any chopped nuts of your choice.
