    Ingredients
    Sesame seeds – 1½ cups
    Ghee – 1 tbsp
    Jaggery grated -1 ¼ cup
    Cardamom powder – 1tsp

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Begin by toasting the sesame on medium heat. Keep stirring while toasting to maintain even heat distribution. Once toasted transfer to another container to cool. Heat a pan and add the ghee in it. Next add in the jaggery and begin melting on low heat. Once the jaggery starts foaming, cook for about a minute. We need to cook the jaggery to a soft ball stage. To check this, keep a bowl of cold water along.

    Drop a bit of the cooking jaggery into the water. On cooling the jaggery should have formed a soft ball that is not too sticky and holds a bit of its shape. On dropping to the working surface it should make a tiny thud sound so as to showing structure and density.

    Do not overcook the jaggery as it will spoil the texture. Use the water test to determine the right temperature and texture.
