Nuvvu undalu /sesame seeds laddu

This is simple ,yet very delicious and nutritious snack with just 2 ingredients.. My favorite 'laddu' . with goodness of sesame seeds,this is an excellent one for kids and elders

There are many varieties of sesame seeds ,most common are ivory colored ones. Darker seeds also taste very well for this recipe ,and it will be more flavorful.
I  used the pale colored ones.

Here is the recipe...

makes 6-8 laddus

What you need:
Sesame seeds 1 cup
grated Jaggery 1 cup (adjust this quantity based on your taste)
if you don't have jaggery ,use brown sugar (reduce quantity to 3/4th cup)   ,but it may not be as flavorful as original ,but still good.
cardamon  2-3 pods (optional)

How to proceed:
 Dry roast the sesame seeds till they turn golden color and release Aroma. This is very important to roast properly ,if not roasted  ,end result will not be good.  Sesame seeds will start to crackle when heated. Its the sign that they are roasted.

 Do not over roast  ,they change to dark color when over roasted and may taste bitter. Allow it to cool.

2) grate jaggery.

3) using grinder/Mixer, pulse sesame seeds and make coarse powder.
4) Add powdered jaggery to this and blend it again ,consistency should be little bit coarse.

5) Transfer this mixing bowl ,make sure its blended properly.
6.) shape into round balls. ,if required add 1-2 tsp of milk to make round shape. Normally oil that is released from sesame seeds will be sufficient to bind

6) Enjoy your laddu's.

Storage :  stays 2 days out side , if kept in fridge it can stay up-to a week.
