Nuvvula Ladoo / Til Gud Ka Ladoo / Sesame Ladoo

 Nuvvula ladoo or Til  gud ladoo is one of my favorite. My mom makes these ladoo for Nagula

 Chaviti which falls on 5th day after Naraka Chaturdasi. On this day people in Andhra Pradesh and

 Telengana worship Nagas or Snakes. Usually on this day women visit the nearest Snake pit or

 nagula putta and pray to Snake god. Women  pour some cow  milk into the snake pit and offer some

 fruits or naivedyam and perform pooja. They  also decorate the snake pit with flowers, haldi

 kumkum and lite a diya or deepam. 

Along with Nuvvula ladoo other naivedyam offered are Vadapappu and Chalimidi. Nuvvula ladoo is

 made  with just 2 ingredients and is very tasty and healthy. These ladoos are rich in Calcium and

 Iron. Its well and good if you have jaggery powder, go ahead and use it.  

This recipe goes to day 3 week 2 of BM 120 under the theme " All that can be rounds ".


Nuvvulu / Sesame seeds 2 cups

Bellam / Gud / Jaggery 1  cup

Warm milk 2-3 tbsp ( optional and if required )

Preparation :

On a very low flame dry roast sesame seeds till nice aroma comes.
