Simili Urundai

Simili Urundai

Simili Urundai is a traditional sweet made with sesame seeds during Navarathiri Saturdays. When I was looking for a sweet to prepare for Neivedyam, my mom suggested and made this sweet. Its very easy to prepare and tastes so good. It has no ghee and is made out of just sesame and jaggery which makes it very healthy too.
