A nutritious treat for to-be moms, as the winning combo of sesame seeds and jaggery gives a good boost of iron, which is required to maintain healthy haemoglobin levels. Pop a Til Chikki into your mouth whenever you feel nauseous, and you are sure to feel better instantly. When making this chikki, follow the procedure exactly, as it is important to cook the jaggery to the right stage for a perfect outcome. In the early stages of pregnancy, when til is avoided, you can other options like peanut or almond chikki.

  6. Allow it to cool completely. Once cooled, store in an air-tight container.

The look and texture of the chikki is just perfect! so much like we buy from the stores. The jaggery and til are also in proper proportion. It is not too sweet but not too bland. This crisp chikki has an amazing taste of til..
