Ellu Urundai (Sesame Seed Laddu)

   It's a Traditional Recipe of Tamilnadu....

I have tasted it a lot of time during my school days, Mom use to make this often as our snack and we enjoy this lovely laddu after school in evening, later after my marriage i use to get this in supermarket but that never tasted as my homemade one, Store brought one is so hard to bit and our home made is so soft and melts in mouth...It's so Healthy especially for women, but this should be avoided during pregnancy....

This recipe doesnt need Ghee or oil to roll as laddu as the oily property of Sesame seed emits oil while grinding it.

I have used Black sesame seed for this recipe...


Sesame Seed (Ellu) - 2 cup
Jaggery - 300 gm
Cardamon - 2 nos.


Dry roast the Sesame seed, until the nice aroma comes.
While roasting every seed will splutter.
Allow to cool the sesame seed.
Grate the jaggery and keep it aside.
Once the Sesame seed cooled, Grind it in mixer along with cardamon pieaces.
when it got powdered coarsely add Jaggery allow to run in pulse for 1 or 2 times.
Transfer it to a Pan and Make a round shape Laddu out of the mixed powder.
Keep it in Air tight container, it will be good for about 10 days outside refrigerator.
