Sesame Seed - Peanut Laddu

From an uninitiated Indian perspective, the word "sweets" stand for all culinary things that are obviously sweet and are from the subcontinent. In a traditional sense, none of the baked goods or the western desserts usually fall under the category and they are never a part of a religious feast. For the second day of BM under the theme of desserts, I preferred to go with an Indian sweet.

Among the myriad varieties of Indian sweets - laddus, kheer / halwa and burfis entice me more and so thought of posting a nutritious and super quick laddu today. Made with healthy ingredients, these provide a quick boost of energy to little ones besides being yummy and easy ones to prepare.

Ingredients: (Make 10 laddus)
1/2 cup roasted, skinned peanuts
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
1/4 cup grated dried coconut /copra
1 cup jaggery powder

* Grind coarsely all the ingredients together in a food processor or a blender. 
* Collect the mixture in your right hand fist as much as it holds and shape it into a ball. Repeat the step with the remaining mixture.
* Store the laddus in an airtight container. Refrigerate only if needed to store for longer period. Or else leave them on the counter.
