Notes
•Use same quantity of sesame seeds, peanuts and desiccated coconut.
•Roast all the ingredients on low heat.
•It's important to perform the jaggery test for better results. It should be solid when dropped in water.
•You could add almond powder if you wish to.
•Also make ladoos when the mixture is warm. Rub some ghee on your palm before shaping them. Keep the ladoo mixture covered else it will start firming. In case it gets firm warm them again and shape ladoos.
