Tilache Ladoo

A Makar Sankranti special and popular Maharashtrian recipe Tilache Ladoo also known as Tilgul.    For this you have to use the chikki jaggery.  For jaggery in Marathi we say Gul and sesame seeds Til.  These are crisp and delicious, you will not be able to stop eating at one, that's for sure.......  so here I say  "Til gul ghya ani god god bola ".

250 Grams Jaggery  - Chikki Jaggery
250 Grams  Sesame Seeds (Til)
1 Tablespoon Desi Ghee
4 Tablespoons  Groundnuts - roasted , skinned and 
8 - 10 Cashew nuts - chopped
15  Raisins
1/2 Cup  Dry Coconut - 
 grated and roasted 
1 Teaspoon  Cardamom powder


Take a bowl, add til (sesame seeds), crushed groundnut, chopped cashews, raisins & grated coconut. Mix all the ingredients, keep aside.

Heat a kadai, add jaggery and ghee let it melt completely.   Keep stirring the mixture till the jaggery  melts completely.  Will start to  change colour, ( to check whether it's ready take a bowl of water, add  a drop of jaggery, if it forms a ball ) remove it from the flame.  Add elaichi powder and mix well.  Add the til mixture and mix well. Apply some ghee  to your hand and immediatley start making ladoos.  Serve these to your family and friends......  
"Til gul ghya ani god god bola "
