Happy new year all of you! Its 2020! I hope the year has kicked off positively for all of you. Thinking of January, reminded me of festivals in January and the foremost festival celebrated widely in India during January is “Makar Sankranti” or “Pongal” or “Lohri“, depending on where you are in india, you will be celebrating one of these. This reminded of the most common thing made in north Indian households during this festival, i.e. “Sesame Seeds Ladoo” or “Til Ladoo”.

Personally these sweetened balls (laddos) are one of my favourite as these have the distinct taste of sesame seeds and before you say, yes, these have calories too, but once in a while such indulgence is ok, right?

Some people even use these laddo during fasting (for religious purpose), as the ingredients are very basic and does not require to hunt items in kitchen cupboard.

It needs Sesame seeds, Sugar and Khoya/ Mava. If you do not have access to readymade Khoya at your place (or you prefer homemade), you can make khoya easily at home in minutes (almost instantly) using milk powder or ricotta cheese.

Procedure to make these Til / Sesame seeds laddo is absolutely simple, which includes roasting the sesame seeds, mixing with khoya and sugar, and finally giving a shape of laddo (or you can give any other desired shape, may be a rectangular like burfi/ fudge).

Below is the step by step recipe of making Makar Sankranti special Til or Sesame seeds Laddo.
