Sesame and Flaxseed Laddoo

I am just back from a long holiday from Chandigarh. Its winters and one thing that caught my attention is it is during winters they eat a lot of jaggery and sweets made of jaggery. It is cold even here, so thought of making gud (jaggery)  laddoos. I was introduced to flaxseeds by my friend CK and I loved it from the beginning. So I thought of making Til(sesame) laddoo but gave a twist by adding flaxseeds to it. It is such a simple and easy recipe and you don't require many ingredients. So happy cooking....



Ingredients:

Flaxseeds - 100 gms
Sesame seeds - 100 gms
Jaggery - 100 gms
Ghee - 1 tbsp

Method:


Roast flaxseeds as well till the raw smell disappears. Cool and keep aside. 


Roast the sesame seeds till they are light golden in color. Cool and keep aside.


Grind sesame and flaxseeds to a coarse powder and keep aside.


Heat the ghee in a pan and add the jaggery. Simmer over low flame till jaggery caramelises.


Add the roasted ground sesame and flaxseeds and mix it thoroughly with the melted jaggery.


Take off the flame and let it cool down a bit. When it is still warm grease your palms with a little ghee, divide the mixture into equal portions and shape the mixture into laddoos.
