Ellu Urundai Recipe - Sesame Laddu | Ganesh Chaturthi Recipes

Ellu Urundai Recipe

Ellu Urundai(Sesame Laddu) is one simple recipe we usually make on vinayagar chaturthi.This is quite easy to make and yummy ladoos are ready in minutes.We use the same as pooranam for making poorna kozhukattai. I made ammini kozhukattai,modak,chana sundal and ellu urudai last year....I am yet to plan for this year :)

I made this post last year along with ammini kozhukattai, but as the post is very long I seperated it into 2 posts and am here with ellu urundai as repost.

My Notes:
  • Make sure you first grind sesame coarsely then add jaggery to it for even grinding. Some make ellu urundai without grinding itself but I prefer this way :)
  • I didnt add ghee or oil, the oil leaving from the sesame was just enough to form balls.But if you want you can add 1 or 2 tsp of ghee.
  • You can use black or white sesame for making these ladoos.
  • You can add ghee roasted chopped nuts too.
