Sesame Seed Balls

What’s Cooking? by P.S. Lakshmi Rao

1 Cup white sesame (skinless) seeds

1⁄2 Cup brown sugar

2 Tablespoons maple or any pancake syrup

 Method: Roast the sesame seeds in dry pan until light brown over low heat. Transfer them to a bowl and let them cool completely.

Blend the seeds in a blender or pulse for thirty seconds on high speed, mixing once. Add brown sugar and blend or pulse for another thirty seconds. It is okay if you have a few seeds left. Remove the powder from the blender into a bowl and mix the syrup and powder. Make 12 to 14 lime size balls.

 Note: This is a very quick sweet to make with only three ingredients. You can add a few finely chopped pistachio nuts. If you don’t have any syrup add 2 tablespoons more brown sugar. Add a few drops of milk or water to make balls.
