Til Ke Laddoo

Though I am a big fan of til ke laddoo , I never tried to make them at home before. I don't like the jaggery version of the laddoo's as it feels more sticky and a little extra sweet to me. Hence , I have made the laddoo with sugar only.


Ingredients :


1. Sesame seeds (til)- 1 cup
2. Powdered sugar- 1 cup
3. Milk powder- 1 cup
4. Milk- 3 tbs


Procedure :

Now you must be wandering , why have not I used mawa. The simple reason is that I had a packet of dry milk powder in my store from a long time , so I wanted to make use of it. Instead of using store bought mawa , I made my own. In a bowl take the milk powder and add the milk to it. Now knead this properly and soon you will get a hard dough just like mawa. Wrap it in a cloth tightly and keep it in refrigerator for 2 hours and your mawa is ready.
Now grate the mawa and keep it aside. In a kadhayi dry roast the sesame seeds until they turn a little brown and start popping out. Let it get cooled and grind it. Next dry roast the mawa until it turns a little brown , keep stirring it or else it will stick to the bottom of the pan.


Now mix the sesame seeds , sugar and roasted mawa. The mixture is ready for the laddoo. Grease your palm with a little ghee and make small balls from the mixture while its still warm.
Since I have used milk in it , I had to keep the laddoo in refrigerator.
