Only we shaped them as laddos.
Black Sesame seeds - 1/2 cup
Jaggary - 1/2 cup
How to make:
Wash and dry the black Sesame seeds in shade. Then dry roast them for few seconds. Make sure you don't do it for more than few minutes, this is just to make sure it's dry.
Melt the jaggary in a bowl, remove impuries if any.
Bring to boil and continue cooking till you get a thread consistency.
Add the roasted sesame to the bowl and stir well. It will start to form a thick mix, remove down.
Have a bowl of water near by, quickly take small balls of the mix and form laddos. Please take care as it will be hot, you can allow it to cool for sometime.

Amma and Athamma got together to plan for this year too. They have been
asking me what I plan to make new for this year along with most of the above.
Above all we might take the kids to get Ganesh Idol home, so it will be great fun!
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi, and enjoy the festival!
