White till - 1 cup
Jaggery - shaved/shredded - 1 cup
Cardamom - powdered - a pinch
Turmeric - 1 pinch
We always add a pinch of turmeric to any dish that is made for a festival as as an offering to God.
In a heavy bottomed dry kadai, fry the till until it turns golden brown and the raw smell goes.
Allow it to cool down completely. As the till is cooling down, get the jaggery and cardamom ready. Shred the jaggery and gather 1 cup of it. Peel the cardamom and grind it with the mortar and pestle.
When the till is completely cool to the touch, add all the ingredients to a mixer jar and blend for 1-2 minutes. The till will be ground and oil will start oozing out, thereby making the mix pliable to forming laddoos.
Take the mixture out and quickly make laddoos. Delicious Laddoos are ready for the pooja or for you own Pete Pooja :)
