Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Ladoo for the Elephant God

Ganesha is known for his love for food and specially Ladoos and modak. So this Friday I share two ladoos that I made for my Ganesha

Til/Sesame Ladoos

Ingredients

  • 250gms white sesame seeds
  • 150 gms jaggery (there is a one available which is dark if u get that even better, I couldnt get it this year)
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder

Method

  • Dry roast the sesame seeds till they turn light brown
  • After the seeds cool down a little grind them
  • Mix jaggery, cardamom powder and the grinded sesame seeds
  • Make ladoos out of it

They are just yummilicous but very high on calorie and also in heat… so should be avoided in hot weather

Coconut Ladoos

These are very easy but extremely delicious, they have been on my best and easy to make sweets for a long time now

Ingredients

  • 3 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp chopped cashew nuts
  • 1 tsbp raisins

Method

  • Mix 2.5 cups of desiccated coconut, condensed milk, cashew nuts and raisins together
  • Refridgrate for 30 mins
  • make equal size ladoos and roll in the left over desiccated coconut so that it covers the ladoos

      BTW., thanks for sharing recipe. I prefer to eat once such laddoos are ready than taking the pain to cook when my mom and wife can take care of the preparations 🙂
