PEANUT SESAME LADOO
Most of us love to eat sweets ! We are ever ready to have one or the other of the many different types of sweets we make in India. A popular Indian sweet made in every Indian home is the Ladoo/Laddu.
Elsewhere in this blog, you will find recipes for different types of Ladoos such as:-
Today's recipe is for a delicious ladoo made with just three ingredients: Peanuts, Sesame Seeds, and Jaggery.
As you know, peanuts and sesame seeds have numerous health benefits. Peanuts are rich in protein , fat and fibre. Sesame Seeds are rich in nutrients vital to bone health. The third ingredient jaggery is again rich in many minerals and vitamins. It scores over refined sugar in many ways.
Also, this recipe does not call for the use of ghee. So the good news is that these ladoos- in moderation, of course- are healthy as well being very tasty!
I have adapted this from Peanut Sesame Ladoo or Palli Nuvvala Laddu by blogger Hari Chandana.
The quantities mentioned of the ingredients yielded me with 10-12 Ladoos.
- Peanuts, 1 cup
- Sesame Seeds, (Til), 1/2 cup
- Jaggery, grated/powdered, 3/4 cup
- Cardamom, 2 : Peel and powder /
