There is a traditional charm about this recipe that makes it appeal to everyone! Aromatic ingredients like dry roasted sesame seeds and crushed peanuts are sweetened with jaggery and laced with cardamom to make delicious laddoos. Unlike sugar, jaggery has a distinctive flavour, which complements the other ingredients beautifully. This Til Laddu also requires very little ghee, just to boost the aroma, because the crushed peanuts and jaggery provide enough stickiness to hold the laddu together.
This traditional Maharashtrian sweet is served during festivals like Sankrant .
