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.
- Heat a deep non-stick pan, add the sesame seeds and dry roast on a medium flame for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove and keep aside.
- Heat the ghee in the same deep non-stick pan, add the jaggery, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 3 minutes, while stirring continuously.
- Switch off the flame, add the roasted sesame seeds and mix very well.
- When the mixture is ready, put the entire mixture over the back of a greased thali or a smooth stone surface. Roll it out thinly into a 200 mm. (8”) diameter circle using a greased rolling pin.
- Cut them into 38 mm. (1. 5’’×1. 5’’) square pieces using a sharp knife.
- Allow it to cool completely. Once cooled, store in an air-tight container.
