Notes

Instead of black sesame you can use white once and do it. If you do without peanuts make measurement as 1 full cup. Jaggery stage is very important for the successful outcome of this ellu urundai. It will be very hot while rolling the balls and you should be quick about it otherwise the dough will set.
