Til ladoo / sesame ladoo
Ellu Urundai

An easy to make, healthy and delicious laddu with just 3 ingredients : sesame seeds, jaggery and peanuts. This is my first attempt of making sesame laddu and its very special to me as the sesame seeds are cultivated from our own farm and its completely organic. I reserved some kgs of sesame seeds for trying out new recipes. Rest are used for making sesame oil.
