How to make Til Chikki Recipe - Healthy Sesame Bars
To begin making the Til Chikki recipe, we will first grease an 8 x 8 square pan with ghee that has a minimum of two inch rim and keep aside.
Place a pan on medium heat and roast the (til) sesame seeds till they are light golden in color. Turn off the heat and allow the sesame seeds to cool.
Heat ghee in a sauce pan on medium heat; stir in the crushed jaggery to the ghee and allow the jaggery to melt. Turn the heat to low and continue stirring until it the jaggery caramelizes. When you drop a small amount into cold water it should form a hard ball.
Turn off the heat and immediately stir in the roasted (til) sesame until well combined with the melted jaggery.
While the mixture is hot quickly spread the mixture on to the greased pan and smoothen the surface with a flat spatula. Allow the mixture to cool completely allowing it to set.
When completely cool, cut the Til Chikki/ bars into desired shapes and serve as a healthy sweet for the festivals
