ABOUT TILGUR / TIL KE LADDOO RECIPE

Tilgur or Til ke laddoo is a sweet prepared during Sankranti festival. Roasted sesame seeds are cooked in thick jaggery syrup and made into laddoos (balls) You can also add some mixed nuts, peanuts or raisins if you like. I have tweaked the recipe a bit and added little milk powder to give body to the laddoos.
