Peanut Ladoo Recipe-Groundnut Sesame Seed Coconut Laddu with Jaggery

Peanut sesame seed coconut laddu is very nutritious, healthy and easy to prepare. You just need 3 main ingredients for making this laddu.  I love snacking on these healthy guilt free laddus. As these laddus contain peanuts, jaggery and sesame seeds, they are rich in protein and iron. These guilt free laddus can be had as a snack, can be given to children as after school snacks or can be packed in their snack boxes. I often make and stock these kinds of healthy laddus at home to snack in between meals. I adapted the recipe from here. What I loved is the addition of ganthoda powder. Ganthoda/Peppermaul powder is made from the root of long pepper. It is said to help joint pains and gastric troubles. Today we will learn how to make nutritious peanut laddu with jaggery, sesame seeds (til) and dry coconut following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.
