Custard Sesame Balls


A very happy Makar Sankranti to all my friends and readers!! This is the first festival of this year, so obviously, it calls for a lot of sweets. Traditionally, people eat sweets made of til (sesame seeds) and gur (jaggery), like Tilpatti, LadduChikki, Gazak and Rewri. I usually follow the traditions while making sweets for Makar Sankranti, but give them a slight twist to deviate from the same, boring taste year after year. This year, I have made Custard Sesame Balls, an innovation in which I have used both sesame seeds and jaggery and added a few more things to make it an interesting sweet. Try making it today, or when you plan to host a party at home, as this is very simple to cook and a very unique preparation. Here’s the recipe:


1 cup refined flour
2 tablespoons custard powder
4 tablespoons dessicated coconut
4 tablespoons caster sugar
2 tablespoons jaggery (grated)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 bowl white sesame seeds
1 cup warm milk
Oil (to deep fry)


Mix all ingredients together except sesame seeds, milk and oil. Add milk gradually and knead into a soft dough. Keep aside for 10 mins. Make small balls out of the dough and coat them with sesame seeds. Deep fry in medium hot oil till well cooked. Drain on a paper towel. These balls can be served hot or cold. Perfect for adults. Perfect for kids!

Eat, drink and be merry! 🙂
