Chimmili/Sesame Jaggery Laddu/Til Aur Gur Ka Laddu


Chimmili is Andhra delicacy prepared with just two ingredients, sesame seeds and jaggery powder. We often prepare chimmili because of it’s enormous health benefits. Sesame seeds are good source of vitamins and minerals, specifically iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc. Jaggery is very good for constipation and also used to treat anemia because it has high content of iron. Usually chimmili is prepared for Varalakshmi pooja, nagula chavathi(Fourth day after Diwali) and Subrahmanya Sashti. Chimmili can also be used as a stuffing to prepare modak during Ganesha Chaturthi. Apart from poija rituals, this is also a must like pulagam(Posted earlier)  and given to girls who just entered into adolescence. The sesame and jaggery combo strengthen bones and purifies blood  and maintain good haemoglobin levels naturally. Here I present wholesome sweet chimmili to relish as an evening snack. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
