The third week of Blogging Marathon #20,comes to an end today and my final post in this series for ‘Kids Delight-Potluck party’ is a flavorful ladoo which is a hit with Lil Angel.

There are so many versions of sesame ladoo and the simplest one is posted here. Today’s recipe for made specially for Ganesh Chathurthi [and my Lil one] and is a no- cook dish. Very simple procedure yet very delicious and healthy.

Sesame seeds are rich in Calcium and Jaggery is a good source of Iron .So this is a healthier option when compared to chocolates.

I used:

Toasted White sesame seeds – 1/2 cup
Grated Jaggery – 1/4 cup [Adjust to taste]
Grated coconut – less than 1/4 cup
Roasted bengal gram – 2 teaspoons
Cardamom powder- a pinch

  1. In a blender jar, put in all the ingredients and blend for a few seconds.There can still be a few pieces of gram dal and sesame seeds.These will add a nice crunch to the ladoo.
  2. Transfer the mixture into a bow.
  3. Add the powdered / grated jaggery and mix well.
  4. Make small balls from the mixture and the ladoos are ready to serve…..

This nutritious treat is off to Srivalli’s Kid’s Delight – Potluck Party

Bon Appetit…

  1. Two questions (1) Fresh grated coconut or dried? (2) And roasted dal- is this dal that is roasted at home or do you mean puffed puffed chana dal (sorry only know the kannada name, putani, possibly called dalia in hindi).

    Thanks for your answers.
