Sesame Laddos are very versatile and most sought out in our home. I love these laddos and I have known Amma making these laddos during Vinayaka Chaturthi. As we have Vinayaka Chaturthi coming next week, I know I am going to enjoy these treats again.
Though we normally make these laddos with just plain Sesame seeds, Athamma makes it with Freshly grated Coconut too. So here is her version of Laddos
Black Sesame Seeds - 1 cup
Jaggary - 1 cup
Fresh Coconut, grated - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 tsp
Method to prepare:
If you have to wash the Sesame seeds, wash and let it drain in a colander. Then spread it over a cloth and allow it to dry in shade.
Powder the jaggary into a bits.
Then take the Black Sesame Seeds and Jaggary in mixer and pulse it to a fine powder.
Grate the coconut, fry in ghee. Remove and keep it aside.
When the sesame seeds have been ground to a course powder, pulse the fried Coconut along with sesame seeds for once.
Finally remove and shape into balls.
Store these in air tight containers for a week. These are very handy to make when you have excess coconut on hand.
