Recipe by devika of delhi, IN

yummmm! can't stop eating.

Ingredients vegetarian 4 servings

    • 250 g White sesame seeds
    • 1/4 cup Peanuts
    • 1/4 cup Dry coconut (khopra), grated
    • 1/2 tsp Green cardamom powder
    • 1 cup Jaggery (gur), grated
    • 1/2 tbsp Pure ghee


    1. Roast white sesame seeds on hot tawa till crisp taking care that they do not change colour.
    2. Roast peanuts, remove skin and then make a coarse powder. Lightly roast grated dry coconut. Mix sesame seeds, peanut powder, grated dry coconut and green cardamom powder.
    3. Melt jaggery in a thick-bottomed vessel (do not put water). Stir till it melts. Strain to remove impurities. Add half a tablespoon of ghee and mix.
    4. Cook, stirring on low heat, till a thick syrup is formed. To test if the syrup is ready, put a drop in a little cold water. If the syrup forms a semi hard ball, the syrup is ready.
    5. Add the sesame mixture and mix well. Remove from heat.
    6. Grease your hands and make small marble-sized laddoos. Cool before storing.
