Ellu Urundai/Sesame Balls

After peanut balls, one of my weakness is sesame balls aka ellu urundai. This is one of the addictive and super nutty sweet prepared simply with roasted sesame seeds,cardamom powder and jaggery syrup, yes just with 3 ingredients these addictive balls gets ready in a jiffy.Ellu urundai has a wonderful combination of nutty flavour of sesame seeds and jaggery's sweetness with mild cardamom aroma. These sweet balls are highly rich in proteins and an excellent snack balls to munch without any guilt.

You can make this addictive nutty balls with both black and white sesame seeds.These small sesame balls have their important place in a 'Tea kadai menu' and we get this tiny balls easily there. This is my third post for this week's blogging marathon under the theme 'Tea kadai menu'. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#30.Sending this nutty balls to Guru's Giveaway - Kid's Special.


1cup White sesame seeds
1/2cup Grated jaggery
1/2tsp Cardamom powder

Dry roast the sesame seeds until they turns golden brown.

Prepare a syrup by adding quarter cup of water to the grated jaggery and cook it in low flame until the jaggery melts.

Cook until the syrup becomes thicks and sticky.

Finally add the roasted sesame seeds,cardamom powder, mix well and put off the stove.

Grease your palm and quickly shape into small balls
