  • Sesame seeds white/black - 1 cup
  • Peanuts without skin - 1/4 cup (optional)
  • Jaggery - 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom - 1
  • Ghee - 1 to 2 tsp optional
  • Broken cashews - 1 tsp optional


  • Measure and keep all ingredients ready. Dry roast the sesame seeds in a pan until they crack and nice aroma comes. Switch off the flame once the sesame seeds turn brown.
  • Grind the roasted sesame seeds to a slightly coarse powder for 5 to 10 seconds. Then add powdered jaggery, peanuts(if using) and cardamom to the blender.Grind again for a few seconds until the sesame seeds, peanut and jaggery are well blended.
  • Transfer everything to a plate or bowl, add broken cashews and mix well. Break any lumps formed with your fingers. You can skip the ghee if the oils released from sesame seeds & peanuts are enough to roll them into balls.
  • Roll the mixture into laddus till all the mixture is used up. Store them in an air tight container once done. The laddus last well for a week at room temperature.
