Til Laddoo is mostly associated with Makar Sankranti which is also named as Til Sankranti by some communities, and on that day it is a ritual to have this laddoo. Sesame (black or white) is mixed with jaggery and made into small rounds. The flavor of jaggery and sesame blend together to give a mild yet lingering taste.
