Sesame Ladoos -TIL Ladoos for Makar Sankranti

By Jinal Gada


Sankranti is the harevest festival all over India. It is the harvest festival which is marked by the Sun’s shifting position. The celebration of Makar Sankranti coincides with many other festivals called the Lohri in Punjab, Pongal in Tamil Nadu and Bhogali Bihu in Assam.


Each festival in India has it own delicacies. Like Christmas is incomplete without cakes and brownies, Makar Sankranti is incomplete without sesame Ladoos.

Sesame Ladoos in itself are very healthy. I have tried to make it even healthier by removing the Gud, ghee and added dates instead. And like always this is also a quick recipe.



  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 cup seedless dates
  • 1/4 tbsp elaichi / cardamom powder


  • Dry roast peanuts and sesame seeds separately. 


  • Coarsely ground them together and then add cardamom powder and dates.


  • Mix them well and make balls.

  • Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top and it’s ready.

Isn’t it easy? Try it for your self, your baby and family and let me know how you like it.

Additionaly I may like to share with you that each 100 grams of sesame seeds has 1130mg of calcium content as compared to 120mg in milk. Isn’t this amazing.
