Sesame seeds laddo / Til ka laddo / Ellurundai

  
   Ellurundai / til ka laddo is a traditional Indian sweet. In South India, we make these laddoos with black sesame seeds and considered as poor man's delicacy in olden days. But not anymore. Nowadays, people don't make it the traditional way and you don't get it in the sweet shops also. Making the laddoos the traditional way is a bit difficult now as we need the traditional pestle and mortar for pounding. Instead we make do with the mixer grinder now. The traditional way of making tastes so much better without any doubt. But when you crave for these laddoos even the substitute tastes great. So for those of you with a sweet tooth,this one is a must try. Here comes the recipe.


INGREDIENTS:
1. Black sesame seeds: 1/2 kg
2. Jaggery / Karuppatti: 1/2 kg
3. Fresh coconut: 1 no

METHOD:
1. Clean and roast the sesame seeds till nice aroma comes and let it cool.
2. Grate the coconut and Karuppatti and keep them ready.
3. Divide the sesame seeds, jaggery and coconut into 2 or 3 equal portions. Put one portion of the sesame seeds in the mixer and grind till coarse.
4. Add one portion of the jaggery into coarsely ground sesame seeds and run the mixer for a few more minutes.
5. Now roast one portion of the grated coconut till it turns light brown and nice aroma comes. Add it to the ground sesame seeds and jaggery while it is warm (not very hot). Run the grinder till all the ingredients are well mixed.
6. Repeat the process till all the ingredients are used.
7. Put all the portions of ground ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix them well with a spoon.
8. Take small portion of the mix and shape into laddoos while still warm. If the mixture becomes cold, it can be heated up on a low heat.
9. Cool the laddoos and store them in a container. The taste improves after a day or two.
10. One must keep in mind that while running the grinder the load becomes more. Take the portions according to your grinder's capacity.
