Sesame Seeds Ladoo Recipe

Sesame seeds- 1 and a half cup
Ghee-1 tbsp
Jaggery grated -1 and fourth cup
Cardamom powder-1tsp
Here is a step by step recipe

On a low flame roast sesame seeds and roasted sesame seeds transfer to another container to cool.
Heat a pan and add the ghee to it. Next, add in the jaggery and begin melting on low heat.
We need to cook the jaggery to a softball stage. To check this, keep a bowl of cold water along.
Drop a bit of the cooking jaggery into the water. On cooling, the jaggery should have formed a softball that is not too sticky and holds a bit of its shape.
At the last, stage, mix the roasted sesame into the pan. Turn off the flame and mix the sesame quickly into the jaggery. Once mixed well, add in the cardamom powder. Finally, begin cooling the mixture to the point that is easy to handle. Do not over-cool it, otherwise, it will harden and set. Gently shape the mixture into a ball using wet hands.
