Til Ladoo

Ingredients

One cup containing white sesame seeds (toasted)

Khoya ½ cup

1/2 cup containing Gud (crumbled)

A pinch of saffron strands

Two teaspoons Canola oil

Two tablespoons (warm) milk

Method

Heat a thick skillet, add canola oil and sesame seeds. Continuously keep swirling the sesame seeds until they switch bright golden hues. Take it off the flame and on a flat tray, cut the sesame seeds. Soak the saffron in warm milk, then put it aside. Apply jaggery and melt it into liquid in the same pan as sesame, mix it gently until it froths, without reducing it too much, taking it off the blaze.

Add saffron milk to it and mix it until it begins to solidify. Add softened khoya, sesame seeds, and blend well with mixing spoons. Now grease your hands with a little canola oil and take a small portion of the mix using your fingertips (make sure the mixture is not too hot to burn you) and form it into medium-sized balls. Keep this running before you've used up all the blend.

Serve it at room temperature, and this will go far as tossing around sweet treats during a party at home.
