  • Jaggery: 300g
  • Poppy seeds (white) - 3 tsps
  • Sesame seeds - 3 tsps
  • Cashewnuts chopped - 2 tbsps
  • Ghee/Oil - 3 tsps
  • Tortillas 5-6 fajita-sized torn into small shreds

How to Make Tortilla Laddus

  • Heat a heavy-bottom pan for about 3 mins on medium-high and lower to medium.
  • Break the jaggery into smaller chunks and put it into the heated pan.
  • Add 1.5 tsp ghee/oil to this.
  • Roast the sesame, poppy seeds, cashewnuts in a fry-pan for about 5 mins on medium-high and add it to the jaggery.
  • Keep stirring the jaggery with a narrow wooden spoon.
  • When the jaggery has completely melted and is lump-free, add the tortilla shreds. Mix well until shreds are relatively well-coated with jaggery.
  • If it's too dry, add some more jaggery.
  • Add the remaining ghee to this and let it cool for about 10 mins.
  • When the mixture is still warm and pliable, divide it into quantities enough to make small lime-sized balls.
  • Spread a little oil on your palm and shape them into balls.
  • Don't let it cool completely, because the jaggery hardens very quickly.
  • Serve warm as dessert or soaked in milk.
