This is another such recipe that turned out accidentally. I buy half a kilo of peanuts at one time. Due to the humid Indian weather, they have to be either stored in the fridge or roasted and stored in air tight containers, in order to protect them from fungus and other pests. Coarsely crushed roasted peanuts are wonderful as a garnish on most Indian salads. A handful of those make a healthy snack at tea time for a protein kick. When a whole batch of peanuts got finely ground as against coarsely ground, I had to do something with them. I keep finely powdered roasted sesame seeds in a bottle for all those recipes that ask for Tahini because it is something that I don’t find regularly in supermarket shelves here.
Combine finely powdered peanuts with powdered roasted sesame seeds. Sweeten them with natural jaggery. Flavour it with cardamom if you please and what you get is a nutrition blockbuster which is a treat for tastebuds as well.
That is all there is really. And it takes you less than 10 minutes to make these peanut sesame balls / laddoos.
