Ingredients

  • 1 cup (160g) til/ sesame seeds
  • ¾ cup (170g) gud/ jaggery (roughly chopped)
  • ¼ cup (35g) moonfali/ roasted peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon ghee/ clarified butter

Main Equipments Used

  • Heavy bottom pan – I use the Prestige Granite 3-pcs set. You can find it on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/2Q0OMu6
  • Induction cooktop – I use Morphy Richards 1600 Watt Cooktop. You can find it on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/2Jkn4px

Steps In Making for Til Laddu Recipe

  1. In a heavy bottom pan over medium heat dry roast the sesame seeds for 3-4 minutes till they turn slightly golden brown in colour and release a nutty aroma. Transfer them on a plate
  2. In the same pan over medium flame add ghee, once it melts add the roughly chopped jaggery and while stirring it constantly cook till the jaggery melts completely. (around 3-4 minutes)
  3. Now turn the flame low and add the sesame seeds and roasted peanuts and mix till everything is well combined. Now switch off the flame.
  4. Let the til gud ladoo mixture cool down for couple of minutes till you can touch it. Don’t let it cool down completely. We have to make the ladoos while the mixture is still slightly hot.
  5. Take some water and rub it in between your palms.  Now take a spoonful of the til gud ladoo mixture and form ladoos. Be careful as the mixture is hot right now. Similarly form all the ladoos.
  6. Let them cool down completely on a plate for 3-4 hours before storing them in an airtight container. They will last  for upto 2 months.

Recipe Notes

  • Don’t over cook the jaggery or the ladoos will become hard.
  • Don’t let the til gud ladoo mixture cool down completely as the mixture will turn hard quickly and you won’t be able to form ladoos.
  • If doubling the recipe and making a bigger batch then take help of one more person while forming these til gud ladoos, as the mixture turns hard quickly.
