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.
- ½ cup Sesame Seeds
- 3 tbsp coconut Dry grated - (optional)
- ½ cup Jaggery - grated or powdered (use less if you want less sweeter laddoos)
- 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.
- Once a cohesive mixture forms, form laddoos and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
These are so quick to make and i love the idea of breaking the sesame seeds a bit.
Raw sesame seeds and addition of coconut is new 🙂 bookmarking this Pavani !
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
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.
A very healthy and tasty dish. But I am never a fan of this. Should try this out soon again.
