Sweet sesame seed balls made with toasted sesame seeds and jaggery.

Sesame seeds 2 cups Jaggery 3/4 cup Ghee as required

Roast the sesame seeds in a dry pan over medium heat. Stir continuously, and roast until they start to burst.Remove and spread them on a large plate. In another heavy vessel, make syrup out of jaggery, by heating it with a 3/4 tbsps of water, and cook over medium heat to make a thick syrup. To check the right consistency, drop half a spoonful of the syrup into a cup of cold water, it will form a soft ball.
Add the toasted sesame seeds to the syrup, and stir well. Let it cool down a little. When the temperature cools down to a state where the hand can withstand the heat,grease a little ghee on the palm of your hand, pick up a handful of the mixture and make small even sized balls using the hand. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
