Healthy-ish Til Ke Laddoo
One of the few times a “healthy alternative” is as good as the real thing! These Til ke Laddoos give Motichoor a run for its money! Besan ke laddo still win though, but only by a close margin.
Makes ___ laddoos
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 cup shakar
1 cup white sesame
Toast the sesame seeds in a pan on low flame until they turn pale brown. They will emit a beautiful warm, nutty smell. Keep a close eye on the seeds as they are roasting, as they tend to burn quickly.
Then, coarsely grind the peanuts by pulsing in a grinder or food processor.
Then grind the shakar and sesame together.
Mix the ground peanuts, shakar and sesame.
Shape into laddoos and enjoy with a cup of steaming chai!
