Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter C

Theme: A-Z Vegetarian Dishes from Andhra Pradesh

Dish: C for Chimmiri

C stands for a number of veggies like Chamadumpa (arvi), Chilagadadumpa (sweet potato) and so on. C is also for some very traditional dishes like Chalimidi and today’s Chimmiri. Chimmiri is a very simple preparation with just 2 main ingredients.

I was talking to my mom about this series and was asking her about what to make for letter ‘C’. She mentioned ‘Chimmiri undalu’. These are made for Nagula chavithi, I remember eating them, but never made them myself. So my mom gave me the recipe. I wasn’t sure if these sesame-jaggery balls where any different from nuvvulundalu or ellai urundai, so googled and found that most of the other sesame balls where made with roasted sesame seeds, but this one is made with raw sesame seeds.

These are also quite healthy with sesame seeds being very good source of  manganese, copper, calcium, magnesium and dietary fiber. Jaggery is rich in iron and has lots of anti-oxidants that can fight cancer.

Instructions
  1. Blend sesame seeds to a powder in a small blender. Add coconut and blend until combined. Next add the grated jaggery and blend until combined. Don't blend it for too long, since this is a very sticky and thick mixture it might burn mixer's motor, so blend in short intervals.
  2. Once a cohesive mixture forms, form laddoos and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

  1. wow thats an yummy urundalu or urudai 🙂 super quick to make with very less ingredients and looks super cute dear 🙂

  2. That’s very interesting laddo Pavani. Infact I am reading about this word for the first time. As you said we do roast the sesame seeds, raw sounds different and would surely be tried!.

  3. Oh these are really healthy..so they do not require any cooking. How long can we store them…may be I can carry some on my trip to Japan.

  4. As Veena said, we make it without coconut. Coconut surely gives a nice flavour to these ladoos. Irresistible…

  5. I love the normal sesame seeds laddoos. Never tried making those as I go get to taste my mother-in-law’s every now and then. This looks simple enough and doable too! Love them

  6. Wow Love these. Mom and MIL make them in the motor and pestle I shudder to think of the sate the same are in so never did consider making these ladoos. Love to try these will make some for Sankaranti .Thanks a lot.
