Til Ladoo Recipe: Til Ladoo (Til Laddu), a celebratory treat, is typically made to commemorate festivals like Lohri, Makar Sankranti, or Janmashtmi. This exquisite winter treat is created with roasted sesame seeds, jaggery, and saffron as well as other traditional ingredients. Make them, preserve them, and enjoy them anytime you want for the ideal wintertime snack.
Even though Lohri is still a few days away, we must all start getting ready. After all, it’s one of the most significant holidays for Punjabis and is observed with a great deal of splendour and pomp.
Til Ladoo Recipe: Ingredients
- 1 Cup White sesame seeds (toasted)
- 1/2 cup Khoya (softened)
- 1/2 cup Jaggery (crumbled)
- A pinch of Saffron stigmas
- 2 tsp Canola oil
- 2 tbsp Milk (warm), full cream
Heat a thick-bottomed pan with canola oil and sesame seeds.
Stir the sesame seeds often until they start to acquire a pale golden colour. Sesame seeds should be removed from the heat and placed on a flat dish.
Reserve the saffron after soaking it in heated milk. Jaggery should be added to the same pan as the sesame seeds and gently stirred until it froths without being reduced too much. Then, the pan should be removed from the heat.
Add saffron milk and stir it into the mixture just before it begins to harden. Add softened khoya and sesame seeds, then thoroughly combine with mixing spoons.
Now lightly coat your palms in canola oil and, using your fingers and a small amount of the mixture (make sure it’s not too hot to burn you), form it into medium-sized balls. Do this until all of the mixture has been used.
Serve it at room temperature, and this might work great as a sweet snack pass during a party at home.
