'Til ka Ladoo' which is called as 'Nuvvula Undalu' or 'Chimili' in Andhra Pradesh is a simple laddu recipe which requires just two ingredients - sesame seeds and jaggery. The sesame seeds are roasted and ground together with jaggery and is shaped into small ladoos. There is another variation for this laddu where the sesame seeds are mixed with jaggery syrup and is formed into small ladoos which is extremely popular in Maharashtra and is prepared during festivals like Sankranti and Ganesh Chaturthi.

My mom prepares this mixture(sesame seeds- jaggery) along with Groundnut - Jaggery mixture and use them as a filling for Kudumulu/Modak during Ganesh Chaturthi or to pair with Ottu Shavige (String Hoppers/Idiyappam) or as a filling for Obbattu(Holige), but my mom does not make that mixtures into ladoos. We used to finish half of these mixtures in the form of powder before she uses it for the other stuff and hence when ever she prepares, she prepares them in a large quantity.I prefer the groundnut version more than the sesame seed mixture as I like the taste of groundnuts more.
