Sweetened Sesame Treats

Pin It Now!
Ever feel like munching on sesame seeds but munching on the plain ones don't entice you why not sweeten them and pop a few a day.That's exactly what I do,I  powder them or sometimes make them into spheres and pop them whenever I have a sweet tooth.

I am happy to share that this recipe has already been featured at Honest Cooking a Revolutionary and International Cooking Magazine,where you can find interesting articles and delicious recipes by various bloggers,writers,photographers from around the world.You can find this recipe and more of my posts here.

Ingredients
1/4 cup black sesame seeds
3 1/2 tbsp golden brown sugar(+/- as per taste)
4 whole green cardamoms

For binding
1 tsp clarified butter
Warm water(a little more than a tsp)

Method
Dry roast the sesame seeds making sure not to burn it.When cooled well,grind it with cardamoms and brown sugar.Transfer to a bowl  and mix well.Add butter and water to bind.Apply some butter to the palms and make small spheres.Store in the refrigerator and enjoy as you please.Alternatively you can store them as powdered in the refrigerator.
Note:You can skip the butter for binding and use water instead.
