August 27, 2014 Pillayar Chathurthi RecipesSweets/Desserts  2 comments

Ellu Urundai is the most simple and mandatory recipe that we make for Vinayaga Chathurthi. This can be made in a jiffy with just 2 ingredients. These are healthy and addictive too. Vinayaga Chathurthi falls on 29th of this month. Make these nutty flavoured Ellu Urundai / Sesame Ladoos as neivedhyam and serve Lord Ganesh.

Now to the recipe…



[Preparation Time-5 mins : Cooking Time-10 mins]


  • Sesame Seeds – 1 cup
  • Jaggery – 1/2 cup (powdered)


  • Heat a pan and dry roast the sesame seeds until it is slightly brown. U will get a nutty flavour and the seeds will pop. Leave it to cool down for some time.

Serve as neivedhyam for Ganesh Chathurthi.



  1. U can use white or black sesame seeds.
  2. Roast the sesame seeds in low-medium flame until the seeds pop.
  3. No oil or ghee is required. Oil leaving from the sesame seeds is enough to roll into balls.
