Mixed Seeds & Jaggery Fudge - Winter Warmer Delight

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Although we Asians do not consume puddings or sweets after everyday meal, still we consume lots of sugary food in our diet. Puddings and sweets shows up in our menu when there is  any get together, festivities or guests are having dinner with us.

However, my son has caught up in this tradition. Since he started school, he has his school dinners at school, freshly cooked food and yummy puddings he loves. So in the weekends he expects sweet food after his breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Mostly I give him fruit, fruity yogurts, smoothies and sometime I do treat him with some yummy desserts. But his all-time favourite is Tal Papdi - Sesame seeds Fudge, Peanuts Fudge and  those fudge are his most favourite and anytime he swap them with store bought biscuits ! I love to make my sesame fudge with Jaggery, not as much as with sugar. However being a foodie blogger I have tried, Mixed Nuts and Seeds Brittle in the past.

This time I added Pumpkin, Sunflower and Linseed seeds as well, and delighted with the results, no compromise on taste instead turned out more tastier and of course naturally more healthier. Couldn't wish for more :)

You will need :-
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp. linseed seeds
  • 1 cup grated jaggery
  • 3-4 tbsp. ghee
  • 1/2 tsp. cardamom powder ( Elychi )
  • 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg Powder ( Jaiphal )

Method :-
On a low heat roast all the seeds in a heavy based pan till you get nice toasting aroma. ( It will take 8-10 minutes )
Leave it a side to cool.
Take more than 3/4 of the seeds and crush coarse them in blender. Leave few spoons whole.
In a heavy bottom pan heat ghee and add jaggery.
Keep stirring the mixture until jaggery is completely melted. keep low heat and cook little more for about 2-3 minutes.
Now add cardamom and nutmeg powder and all the seeds.
Mix very well.
Take from the heat and spread evenly on a greased tray.
Cut into a diamond or square shape while its warm.
Enjoy !

Made with love Mondays

  4. Healthy, love the way you have added so many different seeds.

  5. This definitely sounds healthier than the "fudge" I've grown up with which is loaded with sugar and other unhealthy things. The combination of seeds sounds delicious, Jagruti...
