MakarSankranti  is celebrated on 14 January every year in many parts of India with some regional variations.It is a harvest festival known by different names. Pongal in Tamil Nadu, Lohri in Punjab, Uttrayan in Gujarat, Bihu in Assam.

At my native place in Bihar, It is eaten with a delicacy includes Flattened rice (Chura) is clean & soaked in warm milk then add yogurt & Jaggery (Gur) or Sugar &accompaniment with sweets made of til papdi (sesame seeds brittle) and peanut chikki Veg curry like Aloo Gobhi Curry Aloo Rassedar.  

This year for Makar Sankranti I am making Til mawa ladoos for my family, It’s a yummy combination of sesame seeds, mawa(milk solids) and Powdered Sugar. Celebrate the warmth of festivals with these sesame seeds ladoos.

Ingredients

Following, turn off the flame and let the mawa cool down a little. Then add the powdered sugar in the mawa followed by sesame seeds coarse powder and mix everything really well. Bind the firm ladoos from the warm mixture and place them on a plate. Til mawa ladoo are ready.
