  • ¾ cup White Sesame Seeds
  • 2 tbsp Black Sesame Seeds
  • 3 tbsp Almonds
  • 250 gm Mawa Khoya (reduced milk)
  • tsp Cardamom Powder
  • ¾ cup Powdered Sugar Confectioners Sugar / Icing Sugar


  • In a pan roast white sesame seeds on medium heat gently and continuously tossing them around in the pan with a spoon or spatula.
  • Once they begin to change colour and you hear a crackle or two, immediately decant the seeds on to a plate. Set aside to cool.
  • Repeat the same procedure for black sesame seeds. Remove the seeds in a separate plate or bowl and allow to cool.
  • In the same pan toast the almonds on low heat for a few minutes or till they just begin to change the colour. Remove in a bowl and allow to cool.
  • Pulse the white sesame seeds (each pulse should be of a second or two else the seeds will release their oil) to a coarse or fine powder (which ever is desirable to you).
  • Remove the powdered white sesame seeds in a mixing bowl & add sugar & cardamom powder to it along with cooled black sesame seeds
  • Repeat the same process with the almonds and add them to the above ingredients. Set aside.
  • In a heavy bottom pan (I use a wok/ kadahi) roast the khoya/ mawa on medium heat for 5 – 6 minutes. (I prefer grating it over crumbling for easy roasting)
  • Switch off the heat and add the sugar – sesame seed mix and using mix everything well. Be careful of the heat.
  • Start making the laddus when you are able to handle the heat of the mixture but also ensure not to allow the mixture to cool down else it will be difficult to roll the ladoos.
  • If the mixture sticks to your hands while making laddus, moisten your hands a little and they will easily roll.
  • This mixture should yield anywhere between 10 to 12 laddu.

Recipe Notes

Note – I advice you sieve the confectioners sugar to get rid of any lumps and also for easy assimilation in the laddu mixture.
