Kitchen Masti points.

  1. Roasting the sesame seeds is very important or else the mixture may taste bitter.
  2. Consistency of jaggery is very important.Thread type of consistency is a must. If you cannot attain thread type consistency, then, you may find it difficult to shape it into balls. 
  3. Similarly too much of  jaggery consistency will harden the sesame mixture and the laddoos will turn out to be very hard.
  4. You can add cashew pieces to the sesame mixture.
