Foxtail Millet & Sesame Laddoos

Once i started experimenting with foxtail millet, i realized that they are versatile and you can dish out many variety foods with them from starters to sweets. One of my recent trial with foxtail millet is this incredible,nutty sesame laddoos. Trust me, these balls are seriously addictive, both foxtail millet and sesame together works out wonder and these balls are definitely guilt free snacks to enjoy anytime of the day.Roasted sesame seeds and roasted millet when grounded together with jaggery,makes these cuties,dont even need any ghee or milk to shape them.

A nutritious laddoos aka balls to munch whenever you feel like having something sweet, a prefect balls to satisfy your sweet tooth as well. These guilt free vegan balls takes hardly less than 20minutes to get ready and believe me they will get vanished very much quickly too.Sending to Pari's Only Food for Pregnancy.


1/2cup Foxtail millet
1cup White sesame seeds
3/4cup Grated jaggery

Dry roast the foxtail millet until a nice aroma comes from,keep aside and let it cool completely.

Continue the same process with sesame seeds, dry roast it and let it cool.

Take the roasted foxtail millet, roasted sesame seeds and jaggery in a mixie jar, grind until everything turns as smooth powder.

Transfer it to a plate,make out balls from it, the oil from the sesame seeds itself is enough to roll the balls.

Store it in an air tightened box.

Stays prefect for a week.

I just made it, but i am getting a bit crunchy taste of the millet. Should i have roasted it a bit more or did yours turn out the same way.

Priya Suresh said... Reply To This Comment

There will be a bit crunchiness of the millet, if u dont want it, you have roast them in lower flame for few more minutes.Hope this helps. Thanks Revu for trying.
