Til and gur are two classic Indian ingredients that marry brilliantly together. These laddoos are a must during the kite festival or makar sankranti celebrated in India. Sesame seeds are known for their nutritive benefits while jaggery as a sweetener is a much healthier alternative to sugar. This delicious duo is also considered an auspicious combination in India. I sometimes add a few crushed peanuts to it for some more texture and taste. When it comes to traditional Indian mithais this one takes the cake…. err the laddoo!
