Til Khoya Ladoo

Til or yellu or sesame is such a wonder ingredient. I am mesmerized with the versatility of this ingredient! It can be used as a base for savoury items like chutneys, gojjus and it can also be used to make sweets. In the Middle East, usage of sesame is on an other level! Tahini used in hummus, sesame halvah and what not! Indian cuisine uses sesame in the most unique ways. Here is one such delicious creation, til khoya ladoo or til ke bugge!
A rich and decadent ladoo made with oil-rich sesame seeds mixed with rich homemade khoya and sugar. How can that not be tasty! This Sankranti I decided to make these wonderful til khoya ladoo and wanted to post it immediately so many of you can try! By the way, I recently learnt these are called til ke bugge in Delhi and Punjab from a TV show (Tyohar Ki Thali)

It is best to use unpolished white sesame seeds for these til khoya ladoo. Homemade khoya is best for these ladoo but storebought organic khoya will also work well! The mixture will have enough oil in itself, rendered from the sesame as well as the ghee-rich khoya/mawa. The mixture when will have a sand like texture, which means it is ready to make ladoos. But add a little ghee if you feel it is very dry.
