¾ cup white sesame seeds
¼ cup shelled peanuts
1 cup jaggery (molasses)
2 tablespoons margarine or butter

  2. Roast shelled peanuts slightly. Let cool then grind coarsely.
  3. In a deep non-stick pot, add butter or margarine and melt over medium heat.
  4. Add jaggery (molasses) and let it melt, stirring constantly until the mixture starts bubbling.
  5. Turn heat to low and add roasted sesame and coarsely ground peanuts. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon and turn off the heat.
