White Sesame Seeds (Til): 1 cup
Jaggery (Gur): 3/4 cup, grated or finely chopped
Ghee: 1 tablespoon
Cardamom Powder: 1/2 teaspoon
Water: 2 tablespoons


Roast Sesame Seeds: In Vardaan’s Stainless Steel Frying pan, dry roast sesame seeds on medium heat until they turn golden and aromatic. Remove and let them cool.

Prepare Jaggery Syrup: In the same pan, add ghee and jaggery. Add water and melt the jaggery on a low flame until it forms a thick syrup. To test, drop a little syrup in water; it should form a soft ball.

Mix Sesame Seeds: Turn off the heat and quickly add roasted sesame seeds and cardamom powder to the jaggery syrup. Mix well.

Shape Laddoos: Grease your palms with a little ghee. While the mixture is still warm, shape it into small round laddoos.

Cooling: Allow the laddoos to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container.


Enjoy these Til Laddoos as a sweet snack or as part of festive celebrations, especially during Makar Sankranti.
