roasting sesame seeds
Before you begin, take the sesame seeds (til) in a plate or tray. Pick them if there are any small tiny stones. Then heat a thick bottomed pan. Keep the flame to low or medium and add 1 cup unpolished white sesame seeds.
On a low flame or sim, stirring often roast the sesame seeds.
The sesame seeds should become crunchy. So do roast well. You will also hear their crackling and popping sound when being roasted.
Roast for 4 to 5 minutes on a low flame. Taste a few sesame seeds and they should be crisp and crunchy. Then remove them in a plate or tray.

In the same pan, add 1/4 cup peanuts.
Stirring at intervals, begin to roast the peanuts..
Keep on roasting till the peanuts become crunchy. The peanuts should not have even a bit of rawness in them. They should be roasted very well.
Just cool and taste a few peanuts. You should not feel even a bit of hardness or rawness while eating them. If yes then continue to roast for some more minutes. You can even roast the peanuts in an oven. Remove the peanuts also and keep aside.
Now add 1/4 heaped cup desiccated coconut. Switch off the flame.
Roast the coconut with the flame being switched off.
Roast till you get a light golden color.
Remove the roasted coconut in the same plate in which the peanuts were kept. Or you can keep all three - sesame seeds, peanuts and coconut in one plate. Let them cool down or become warm

Now add them in a grinder jar.
Add 1/2 cup heaped jaggery powder and 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder.
Run grinder or mixer for a few seconds and then stop. Check the consistency. Scrape the sides and add in the jar. You can also use the pulse option in your grinder.
Continue in the same way, till you get a consistency in the mixture, where a bit of oil releases from the sesame seeds, peanuts and coconut.
Take a small portion of the mixture in your hands and then press. It should hold shape and not crumble. Don’t grind at one stretch or grind too much as then much oil will be released from the mixture.
