Peanut and Sesame Laddu

I came up with this recipe when my son, who is a big sweet lover, demanded for an instant laddoo. With only 3 ingredients - peanuts, sesame and dates, this laddu can be made in a jiffy. It is quite healthy too as it does not have sugar. Instant energy guaranteed. Can also be kept in your child's snack box without any guilt.

Ingredients :

  • Roasted peanuts ( I bought raw organic peanuts, and roasted them at home ). - 1 cup
  • White sesame seeds - 1/2 cup
  • Deseeded dates        - 1 cup
Method :

  • Heat up a pan and dry roast the sesame seeds till they become slightly brown. Make sure they don't become over roasted. Remove from pan and set aside to cool.
  • In a blender, first take the dates, and make a smooth paste out of it. Set aside in a bowl.
  • Now take the roasted peanuts and sesame, and grind them till you get a fine powder. 
  • Add the peanut and sesame powder to the dates paste, and knead nicely to mix.
  • Make small balls out of it. The stickiness of dates acts as the binding factor to make the laddoos.
  • Store in an air tight container.
Peanuts can also be replaced by any nut/dry fruit of your choice. Any combination of cashew nuts, walnuts, almonds, raisins also work fine for this recipe.
