  • 1 Cup Sesame
  • 3/4 Cup Sticky Jaggery
  • 1/2 Tsp. Cardamom Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Clarified Butter (Ghee)


  • Heat sesame on low fire, stirring continuously so that they do not splutter and fall out of the pan. When cooled, pound them.
  • Heat jaggery in 1/2 cup water till the syrup is thick. Test its consistency by putting a drop in cold water -it should remain firm. Add roasted sesame.
