Its been pretty long time I posted any food item.... I apologize for the delay... Have u forgotten me by any chance????? I hope No.....
Though m not a lover of sweets I can eat any sweet made at home.... (that doesn mean i dont eat store brought ones :P)... Amma makes such lovely goodies Yummm I love them....
Now that Amma and mamama is here m enjoying the goodies she is making...may be it laddoo or Ubbati (Obattu)... Its always Yum.... :)
This is my first experiment with Laddoo's with Amma's measurements.... :)Til Laddoo
White Sesame seeds 1 cup
*Jaggery/Gud 1 cup
Ghee/Clarified butter 1/4 th cup
Cardamom powder 1/2 teaspoon
Cashe Nuts Few for decorating
Note : This jaggery is specially called "Laddu Jaggery or Chikki Jaggery". It is meant for making ladoos and is less brittle when cooked. You can use the regular jaggery if it not available in your local Indian grocery store.
Roast the sesame seeds . Keep aside for cooling. After the peanuts are cold, skin it and crush them in a mortar and pestle, into big pieces.
Heat the ghee in a vessel, when hot add the jaggery. The jaggery will liquify and start to foam. Make sure tht the jaggery liquid has come to a frothy consistency....*(to check take a bowl of cold water and add a tsp of liquid in it if we can form round nd sticky balls then its done)*. NOwRemove the vessel from heat source and add the sesame seeds, roasted cashews and cardamom powder. Mix well and keep stirring.
Using a little ghee to coat your hands take a piece of the warm mixture and form very small balls/ladoos, 1 inch in diameter. Store in a container. Will stay for a long time.
Tastes Yum Yum when u add lozza love in it.
