Ellu Unda/Sesame Balls
1 cup sesame seeds
½ cup jaggery
½ cup water
1 tsp ghee
Dry roast sesame till you hear crackling sound and nicely roasted.
Melt jaggery in ½ cup water and sieve to a heavy bottom pan.
Add ghee to the jaggery and let it simmer on medium flame till you get the soft ball stage. ( At this stage, if you drop little jaggery syrup into a bowl of room temperature water, it will become solid and you can roll it like a jelly in your hand. If it dissolves, boil some more time. If it becomes rock solid in water, your sesame balls will be very hard)
Take off fire and add sesame seeds all at once and stir nicely.
Rub some ghee on your hands and make small balls of the mixture when it is still hot and you can bear the heat.
Let cool and enjoy.
