Time for another blog hop and this month I am paired with Nisha of NishasKitchen. While browsing through her wonderful space I glanced upon these yummy ladoos also known as ellu urundai in tamil and realized that I have not posted even one ladoo recipe. It did not surprise me too much given that I am more fond of savory stuff. But still the blog needs to have the variety and I am soon going to be exploring the ladoos I grew up with. My mom can expect tons of calls for me on ladoos now :) . So what is this ladoo? It is basically a dessert shaped like a ball and is served during festivals. These ladoos are surprisingly very easy to make. Since this was the first time I was making ladoo I had a whole bunch of doubts like how will I make a perfect round or will I get them to stick together.

But I was worrying unnecessarily since the ladoo hardly took time to make and I was able to shape them easily as well. The key is to take a small amount and press it hard so it binds well. Then, use your palms and form a circle. Not even one fell apart and we loved the healthy ladoo. Recipe from NishasKitchen.

Sesame Peanut Ladoo | Cooks Joy


  • 1 cup white sesame roasted (Ellu/Til)
  • 1/2 cup peanuts roasted and skin removed
  • 1 cup jaggery

My Notes

  1. If the mixture keeps falling apart and you are not able to shape it, add a few drops of milk to the mixture. If milk is used to bind the mixture, store the balls in the fridge.



Take sesame seeds in a skillet and roast.


When the seeds take a slight brown color, they are done.


Take peanuts in the skillet and roast.


Peanuts are roasted. Allow to cool and remove the skin.


Take the jaggery and peanuts in a blender or food processor.


Blend well.


Add the sesame seeds to it.


Blend everything together.


Take a small portion of the mix in the hand.


Press it so it combines well. If it does not come together, use a few drops of milk.


Using the palms shape it into a ball.


They take on a nice glossy appearance and are ready to eat.
