Maharashtrian Til Ladoo / Sesame Balls


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.
This is tasty and healty too.


White Til(Sesame)  - 2 cup,roasted
Peanut  - 1 cup,roasted
Jaggery  - 2 cup,grated
(Jaggery can be replaced with 1 3/4 cup of white sugar and 1/4 cup molasses)

  1. Use Food Processor and process jaggery and peanut together till peanut grinds well.
  2. Add TIl and process till everything mixes well and til is powdered .
  3. Take the mixture out and  make small balls .
  4. Store in airtight containers .

PS: If your mix is not coming together while making balls add a few tbsp of milk. But then make sure to store the ladoo in fride.
