Til laddu is a very popular, healthy, delicious laddu. This is best sweet for vegans. Til seeds are very healthy to our bones. It is called ellu unde, til ke laddu, sesame laddu. This laddu can be prepared in any festival like sankranthi, Ganesh chaturthi and navaratri. There are many types of til laddu. The til laddu is one of the energy boosters to our body.


This is my favourite laddu. Since childhood I have loved this laddu. My father always brings this laddu during my childhood. The sesame laddu will melt in our mouth and aroma of cardamom and til seeds are so loving.

This laddu recipe is a combination of til or sesame seeds and jaggery. Til laddu recipes do not need much ingredients. Sesame seeds are dry roasted for a few minutes. A nice aroma will get when sesame is roasted. Tastes of laddu will increase when roast the til. Jaggery syrup is made until it forms like a ball when we drop a syrup into water. After done with syrup for aroma put cardamom powder. Add roasted til seeds and combine well until everything is combined.

After mixing everything the mixture must be little flowing consistency. For too hot we cannot make laddu. When the mixture cools down the mixture will get hard. So once mixing is done it should be flowing consistency. When the mixture is hot, grease the hand with oil or ghee to make ball size shape. Size and shape totally depends upon you. But don’t make too large laddu.

Jaggery syrup is very important for this recipe. Perfect consistency is needed for syrup. This recipe is based on how you prepare jaggery syrup. If jaggery syrup is flowing or very thick the laddu will not become perfect. I am just telling the fact not discouraging someone trying for the first time.

Til laddu are stored at room temperature for one month. While storing the laddu the jar must be airtight. I prefer glass jars for longer shelf life. Eat one laddu per day. After making laddu leave for two to 3 hours for complete cool down. After cooling it down you will feel the real taste of laddu.

They are very good for our body. It is easily out of the diet list because til seeds and jaggery have a lot of health benefits. So try this recipe and thank you for reading. Please watch, like, share and subscribe to my channel also. Stay in touch for the next recipe, I will catch you there.
