When i was kid, i used to go out with my grandpa in evenings jus for a walk.. He used to but my this Sesame Jaggery rounds.. I jus love them.. They used to be bit hard for me to take a bite of them. 
My mom makes this Sesame jaggery balls often n especially for sankranthi. Her version is little soft n i love them too.
I made this for pongal n being little bit busy, i cant post it right away.. 

In some places, they called this as  "Chimiri". Making of Sesame jaggery balls is so simple and al you need is jus two ingredients: Sesame seeds n Jaggery. 
Jaggery plays a key role when it comes to festive food. In most parts of the India, they use jaggery for making sweets/deserts that are supposed to offer to god or the sweets that are made in regard of celebrating festival.. Jaggery is also considered auspicious in many parts of India.. Jaggery has that purity n simplicity of goodness. 

So here is the recipe for Sesame Jaggery Balls:

Sesame Seeds:( white) 1 cup
