Microwave sesame seed laddus in 1 1/2 minutes

Ingredients

  • For the sesame seed mixture-
  • ½ cup sesame seeds, roasted until fragrant
  • ¼ cup roasted peanuts, lightly crushed
  • ¼ cup dalia (roasted chana dal), lightly crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • a small pinch of salt
  • For the syrup-
  • ¼ cup jaggery cut into very small pieces
  • 1/8 cup molasses
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • To roll laddus-
  • Ghee to grease palms

Steps

  1. To make the Microwave Sesame Laddus in 1 ½ minutes-
  2. Combine the sesame seed mixture and set aside.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl or pie dish add the jaggery, molasses and water. Stir well and microwave for 1 minute.
  4. Microwave for 30 seconds again. The syrup reaches hard ball consistency at this point. To test this, in a bowl of water put a fat drop of the syrup. Roll it between your fingers and drop it on the counter or a hard surface.
  5. It should be of hard consistency, making a small sound when dropped. It took only 1 1/2 minute total in my microwave which is 1000W. (Could not put in 1 1/2 in the cooking time above )Individual timing may vary according to your microwave.
  6. Mix in all of the sesame mixture and combine well with the syrup.
  7. Grease your palms well with the ghee and roll the laddus.
  8. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
My Tip: Molasses when combined with regular jaggery gives a very deep and authentic taste to the laddus.

    Neeta, Rupali, Anjana and Usha, thank you so much for your interest in this recipe. Anjana and Usha, molasses is also known as 'kaakvi' in Marathi. It is made when refining sugarcane into sugar and available in shops.It is thick and deep in flavor. Rupali, a special kind of jaggery called chikicha gul in Marathi is used for making laddoos. That could surely be used.
