Til ladoo

This sweet is a mix combination of sesame seeds, peanuts and coconut. Sesame seeds are a good source of calcium, manganese and dietary fibers. Peanuts are enriched with Vitamin E which is essentially required for a healthy skin. Coconut is a good source of Phosphorus, Iron and Vitamin E.
For the special occasion of sakat and makar sakranti , I had prepared this sweet which is easy to make and can be stored for later consumption...... 
Til Ladoos

This preparation will make about 20 pieces
400 grams white sesame seeds(safed til)
100 grams peanuts
100 grams dry grated coconut(khopra)
250 grams powdered sugar(bura)
200 grams condensed milk
In a kadahi(wok) dry roast the sesame seeds till they slightly change colour into light brown.

In a mixing bowl, add all the grounded ingredients and add the sugar powder. To avoid the lumps of powdered sugar give a single rotation of the whole mixture(sugar, sesame seeds, peanuts and coconut) in a grinder.

To this add the condensed milk(for binding) and mix well.

Til ladoos are ready !! 

Optional notes:
If one is allergic to peanuts or coconut powder, avoid adding them to the ladoos. Increase the quantity of sesame seeds as equal to the quantity of the ingredient avoided.
If binding of ladoos is not occurring properly add little more of condensed milk to the mixture.
One can prepare and store these ladoos in advance. Store them in fridge.
