  • Sesame Seeds White/Black - 1/2 cup
  • Jaggery - 1/2 cup
  • Water - 1/8 cup
  • Whole Cardamom - 1 orCardamom powder - 1/8 tsp


  • Measure and keep all the ingredients ready. Roast sesame seeds in a pan for 5 minutes until golden brown. Switch off the flame once done and cool it down.
  • Heat jaggery in a pan with water till it immersing level.Switch off the flame once the jaggery melts completely.
  • Strain the jaggery water using a strainer to remove impurities. Then start heating the strained jaggery water in low flame.
  • In the mean time, take a bowl with water and keep it ready. When the jaggery water becomes little thick, take little bit of syrup in a spoon and add it to the bowl of water. Gather the syrup to make a firm ball with your fingers. If you are able to form a nice ball, that is the correct stage. Switch off the flame and remove the jaggery syrup from heat.
  • Immediately add the roasted sesame seeds to the hot jaggery syrup. Add powdered cardamom at this stage. Mix everything together with a spoon.
  • Now Start making ladoos by taking a small portion with a spoon. Make ladoos with the remaining mix and store the sesame ladoos in an airtight container.Word of caution here, Jaggery syrup will be hot it may burn the skin if touched directly, but you should be really quick in shaping ladoos. If the mixture is cooled down completely shaping the ladoos are difficult.
