ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Probably everybody is busy with the festival preparation now.. coz its Ganesh Chaturthi tomorrow! Even I was doing the preparations, and thought of doing this month's last posting :) I will be sharing an easy recipe today, which is very special for this festival! I already prepared some items for tomorrow because I can't prepare all the dishes alone quickly. Today, I prepared Sesame seeds laddoo, which is one of the favorite dishes of Lord Ganesha. One of my Aunt prepares these laddoos very nicely. They will celebrate Sankashtahara Chaturthy every month and she won't miss these laddoos for the Naivedyam. We used to wait for the pooja to end and eat the tasty laddoos!! I have adopted some tips from her for this recipe. But these laddoos will be more tasty and chewy if you use the liquid jaggery which you can get only in rural areas.


Preparation time: 40 minutes
Yield: 20 - 21 small laddoos

Ingredients:
Powdered jaggery - 1 1/4 cup
Sesame seeds - 1 1/4 cup
Cardamom - 1
Pinch of cooking soda
Water


Procedure:
Roast the sesame seeds to golden color or until you get nice aroma.
Add little water to the jaggery and bring to boil.
Keep the cardamom powder ready.
Crush the sesame seeds in mixer just for 1 - 2 seconds and take out. 
When the jaggery reaches a thick, one thread consistency, add the cooking soda, crushed sesame seeds and cardamom powder. Mix them well.
Then, switch off the flame and wait till the mixture cools down little bit.
Prepare small balls (laddoos) when the mixture is still warm.
Sesame seed laddoos are ready now. Let me wait till tomorrow to enjoy these laddoos!
Happy Ganesh Chaturthy to one and all!! Take care :)
