Til Ke Laddu – Makar Sankranti is around the corner, so I thought I would share this recipe for ladoo with sesame seeds. During Makar Sankranti, til jaggery ladoos were shared with everyone with these words – til gud ghya god god god bola. It means taking til jaggery and saying sweet words. In the evening, we would have a large jar full of ladoos til jaggery and sugar candies, which we would happily steal.
