Til Ladoo (Ellurandai):
Ellurandai is a traditional sweet I could say, as it is been in existence for so many generations now. We make ellurandai once in a while and also while performing Varalakshmi Puja to offer it to Goddess Lakshmi.
Sesame seeds called as Til, Ellu, etc is very rich in Iron. This sesame seeds are said to be an essential nutrient for women. A very good energy provider too. This ladoo has peanuts in it to enhance the taste and flavor.
If the quality of sesame seeds is not very good, wash them in water to remove sand and stone residues, strain it and dry them by spreading on a cloth and then fry them.
