  • Indian style mixie or any heavy blender


  • ½ cup black sesame seeds
  • ½ cup Organic jaggery powder I have used Dhatu brand
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut
  • 4 nos cardamom
  • 2 nos clove
  • 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds Garnish, optional


  • Wash the sesame seeds in water, drain and either sun dry or oven dry them. If you are confident that the product you use is free from impurities, then skip this washing and drying and proceed to make the ladoo.
  • In a heavy bottom pan, add the black sesame seeds, toast until they pop angrily.
  • When they pop vigorously, switch off the heat and add the desiccated coconut to this. Coconut doesn't need much heat, it gets nicely toasted in the pan heat.
  • Transfer the toasted ingredients into a flat plate. Do not leave them in the same pan, the pan heat might burn them. Let them cool down well.
  • Take the well cooled ingredients in a mixer jar. Pulse grind it to a powder. Take care not to grind continuously, or else you might end up with sesame seeds butter.
  • Transfer the ground mixture to a flat plate and shape them into balls. The number of ladoos depend on the size you shape them. I got around 10 ladoos for the above ingredients.
  • I added 1 tablespoon of white sesame seeds around half-way just to give some texture. The white sesame seeds pop out well in the black ladoos and make it attractive
  • Store them in an air-tight container. They will keep good on the kitchen counter for 3-4 days. If you live in hot climate, and feel the coconut might turn rancid, then pls refrigerate.



  • Washing and drying the sesame seeds is purely optional, if you are confident that the product is free from impurities.
  • I have used jaggery powder in my recipe, it can be substituted with sugar, brown sugar etc.
  • Let the toasted ingredients cool down well, before processing them.
  • Pulse grind, do not grind continuously. 
  • The number of ladoos, depend upon the size of the ladoo. 
  • The nutritional value given below is approximate. I have used https://happyforks.com/analyzer. Use it as a guidance.
