Ingredients to make CHIMILI

  • sesame seeds (nuvvulu) - 1 cup
  • Dark jaggery - 1/3 to 1/2 cup

How to make CHIMILI

  1. Coarsely grind the sesame seeds in a mixer jar. Add jaggery and coarsely blend it.
  2. Optionally, If you have a pounding stone or garlic crushing stone at home, lightly pound to get the required texture. The crushed sesame, the extracted oil and the jaggery slowly infuse and form a sticky lump.
  3. Roll it into laddoos.

My Tip:

Good quality dark jaggery gives the required stickiness. After 1 or 2 days, it obtains a nice sour taste due to fermentation. The mixture can be kept in fridge for around a month.
