  • 3/4 heaped cup peanuts
  • 1/4 heaped cup sesame seeds
  • 3/4 cup jaggery
  • 1 whole cardamom


  • To a fry pan add peanuts, dry roast until black spots appear here and there. It starts to crack out and becomes crisp in few mins.Switch off.
  • Remove the skin, rub between your palms and remove.Now break open each peanut and remove the tiny part.(this step is purely optional but I recommend if you are going to give this peanut butter for kids), amma says its pitham not sure of what its called in english.Now the peanuts are ready.
  • Take sesame in a pan and roast till golden brown.
  • To a mixer jar add roasted and cleaned peanuts, sesame seeds and jaggery.Use clean jaggery free from dirt.
  • Add one whole cardamom.First grind it to coarse mixture. Do not run the mixie at a stretch, give intervals and run.Grind further and it will start to come together.
  • It will look greasy as the oil will start to come out.Stop grinding at this stage.Transfer this mixture to a plate.Mix it well, break the lumps.
  • Start shaping ladoo, take a fistful and start shaping.
  • Make round balls and make the ladoos ready.Store in clean dry container.
  • Keeps well in room temperature itself for about a week.


  • Roasting and deskinning peanuts takes time,so you can even make the peanuts ready and store it.
  • Once the peanuts are roasted and ready then making this ladoo takes just few mins time.
  • You grind it a bit coarse too but make sure you shape ladoos only after the oil is released and is greasy.
