This sweet delicacy is good to savour your taste buds around the festival time. To prepare, heat a skillet or a pan and add sesame seeds and peanut in it. Stir at intervals. Remove the peanuts in a mortar pestle.

Allow them to cool. Add one-fourth cup desiccated coconut in the same pan and stir continuously.

Roast the coconut till it becomes light golden or golden. Switch off the cooking gas and remove the skillet and keep aside. Bring the peanuts to cool temperature and crush them coarsely.

Another option is to crush them in a dry grinder. Next, add one fourth teaspoon cardamom powder. Mix well and keep aside.

For making jaggery syrup for Til Laddu, in the same skillet, take half heaped cup powdered jaggery or grated jaggery and 3 tablespoon water. Keep the skillet on the stovetop on a low flame. Keep on stirring the jaggery until it dissolves, and continue to cook till you come to a softball stage in the jaggery solution.

Making Til Ke Laddu: At this stage, switch off the flame and add the dry roasted mixture of sesame seeds, desiccated coconut, crushed peanuts and cardamom powder. Mix the dry roasted mixture with the jaggery solution very well. Keep the pan down.

When the mixture is still hot, begin to form sesame ladoo from it. Spread some oil in your palms to form the ladoos. If you are not able to form ladoos when the mixture is too hot, then wait for some seconds and then make the ladoos.




You can also use half to 1 tablespoon spoon for scooping the mixture and making the sesame ladoo. Then just shape the ladoos once you scoop them out. Serve til ke laddu ladoo during Makar Sankranti or have them as a sweet snack.
