HAPPY SANKRANTI TO ALL
Every where in North Indian til (sesame) is the prasad for Sankranti and ladoo is the most popular preparation. The process for the ladoo preparation in olden days was time consuming and labour intensive.Jaggery and roasted groundnut was pounded in huge mortar with wooden pestle and then roasted til (sesame) was added and pounded again till the mixture comes together and made into balls .These days the entire process takes no time with the use of food processor.
I can bet this will be the most easiest ladoo recipe you have ever heard of.
