Peanut Til Ladoo Recipe

Peanut Til ladoo usually prepared in maharashtra during makar sankranti. Peanut Til laddu is one of my favourite laddu which my mom used to prepare very often. Peanut Til Laddu with warm milk is my favorite after school snack. I can bet this will be the easiest ladoo recipe you have ever heard of.

This one is makes such an easy and quick snack for kids. Jaggery/gudh being rich in iron, the cardamom pods give the ladoos a very appetizing aroma and flavor. Dry ginger helps in digestion and peanut is an excellent source of protein helps to fill the calories that kids loose all the time :) Here comes the recipe for yummy peanut Til laddu.

Preparation Time: 10 min || Cooking Time: 15 min || Serves: 15 laddu

Peanut Til laddu Ingredients:

  • Groundnuts / Peanuts - 1 cup
  • Til/Sesame seeds – 1/4 Cup
  • Grated Jaggery – 3/4 cup
  • Sunth Powder/Dry Ginger Powder – 2 tsp
  • Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Ghee – 1 tbsp for greasing (optional)

How to make Peanut Til Ladoo:

  • Heat a heavy bottomed pan on a medium heat; slowly roast the peanuts to golden brown color. Turn off the flame and let them cool completely. Remove the skin and keep aside.
  • Roast the sesame seeds in a heavy bottomed pan until they are aromatic and start popping. This will take around 3-4 minutes on a medium flame.
  • In a food processor, pulse the roasted peanuts first till you get an almost fine powder. Do the same with the sesame seeds.
  • Add all 3 ingredients (grated jaggery + peanut powder + sesame powder) together in the end and pulse for 2 minutes or so, until the natural oils are released and they come together.
  • Remove onto a plate. Add cardamom powder and dry ginger powder. Mix well and shape into balls of desired size by greasing your hand a little. You don't need any extra ghee / fats to hold the laddoo together. The natural oils in the nuts and seeds do a great job of it. (In case you mixture doesn’t come together, add about 1 tbsp of ghee and then roll them into ladoos.)

My mom & my relatives would have never thought that I could cook someday, let alone the thought of me having my own cooking blog site. After marriage I started cooking for my husband, initially it was a job for me and I never realized when that job became my passion. Now Cooking moves me & Cooking for my family & friends is a fantastic way to bond, reduce stress, and feel satisfied.
