Coconut -Sesame seed Laddoo

There is a small story behind this recipe. I was making Karjikayi/ karikadubu (kind of sweet stuffed with coconut and Sesame seed) on day before the Ganesha festival, it somehow  went wrong. So I stopped preparing it. But, I didn't want to waste the stuffing. Because the stuffing was smooth, I added some more sesame seeds and grated coconut, and gave a quick heat shock!!. Then made small laddoos out of it. It was really tasty.. I hope you will try. You do not have to wait until your karjikaayi screws up!! Enjoy...

  • 2 cups Sugar or Jaggery ( I used Jaggary)
  • 1 cup Sesame seed
  • 1 cup fresh grated or desiccated Coconut
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom/ Elachi powder
  • 1 cup water

    • Take sugar/jaggary and half cup water in a griddle and heat untill you get a thick sugar syrup ( if you touch with your finger you should get a single thread).
    • In the meanwhile dry roast the sesame seed until you get a nice aroma ( starts spluttering). Allow to cool and give a quick jerk in a mixer for 2-3 secs.
    • As soon as the sugar/jaggary  syrup is ready, switch off the heater or flame. 
    • Add Coconut, crushed Sesame seed and Cardamm powder. mix well. Allow to cool a bit. 
    • Make small balls out of it when the mixture is still warm.
