You can make this sweet for any special occasion especially like Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali, Lohri etc.. I hope you all take time out to Thank God as He’s the one who decides our fate and future. Let me also thank you all for being my reader, friend, guide and critics. I have made many wonderful friends during my blogging journey and it has definitely made my journey worthy..
I was thinking of what to make today and decided on these Til nariyal mawa ladoos. I made them for Lohri last year and they turned out great! Lohri festival which is hugely celebrated in Punjab, India is round the corner and they make these til mawa ladoos for this festival. Lohri is celebrated on the shortest day of the year and falls on January 13th this year. It is usually confused with harvest festival makar sankranti as it is celebrated around the same time. I learnt about Lohri festival as I was born and brought in Delhi and personally learnt about festivals of Punjab from my close friends. I had a sweet shop near my house knows as “Agarwal sweets” and each year I will make sure to buy these mouthwatering til mawa ladoos. I finally decided to try them at home and my first attempt was total failure. Obviously we learn from our mistakes and I finally got this recipe from one of my friend in Chandigarh. She was sweet enough to get the recipe from her mom 🙂 ..
Ladoos are Ganesha’s favorite food. These ladoos are also made on special occasions like Baisakhi festival or you can make it just to relish them..
The sesame seeds are roasted and grounded which I missed in my first attempt 🙂 .. Of course you need to get your hands a little dirty while making this ladoo. The combination of coconut and flavours of cardamom take this sweet to another level. So, enjoy making this sweet and you can even try out Kaland Recipe from my blog.
