Til Ladoo Recipe (Sesame seeds candy / Tilgul)

Happy winter season everyone ! Today’s recipe is ‘Til Ladoo’, another winter special recipe.  Whenever I hear about til ladoo the first sentence that comes to my mind is ’tilgul ghya god god bola’, which means have tilgul and talk sweetly. In Maharashtra, during sankranti while serving guests and family members people greet them with this saying.

Ingredients for Til ladoo

Sesame seeds / Til
500 gms
Jaggery / Gud250 gms
Peanuts (roasted)125 gms
Cardamom powder (optional)1/4 tsp
Ghee2 tbsp

Procedure for Til Ladoo

  • In a pan roast sesame seeds. Keep aside. (I have used both polished as well as unpolished ones for my ladoos.)



  •  Like wise roast peanuts also. Remove skin of peanuts and keep aside.


  • Crush sesame seeds for one pulse. Do not powder seeds.
  • In the pan heat ghee. Add jaggery and melt the jaggery.



  • Cook the jaggery on a low flame until it boils and forms a thick syrup.



  •  Check the consistency by adding a drop into a bowl of water. If it forms a ball, the syrup is ready. Switch off the flame.


  • Immediately add the roasted sesame seeds, cardamom powder and peanuts. Mix well.


  • Apply water on your palms. Shape into walnut-sized balls while the mixture is still warm.
  • If you feel difficulty in preparing balls, warm the mixture slightly again and continue.
  • Cool and store in an airtight container for up to a month.



If you do not like whole peanuts, crush them in small pieces and then add. You can also add dry fruits in the ladoo.
