I have tried different methods to make sesame balls aka ellu urundai. I find the below sesame seeds recipe a very easy one. It is also a no fail recipe. Just make sure that you use high quality pure jaggery. If you feel that your jaggery has more dust and impurities, you have to add a very little water just to immerse jaggery and boil it. Filter and strain the impurities. Add this jaggery syrup with sesame seeds while making the powder and follow the same recipe. You might not need to add ghee too.
