Shiny white teeth and robust strong bones need a daily dose of calcium, and what better way to provide this essential nutrient than in the form of a crunchy Mixed Til Chikki!
The ingredients of this chikki such as sesame seeds, almonds and jaggery, are all Calcium-rich foods, which help you avoid and overcome calcium deficiency.
We have used a mixture of white and black til to give a balanced flavour and attractive appearance to this Jar Snacks , which is also very handy to carry in a dabba to school or office, to munch on when you feel hungry.
- Roast the sesame seeds for a few minutes over a medium flame till they are light golden in colour. Cool and keep aside. Repeat with the almonds.
- Grease the back of a flat thali or a stone surface with a little ghee and keep aside.
- Heat the ghee in a pan and add the jaggery to it.
- Simmer over a slow flame till the jaggery melts and caramelizes and forms a hard ball when you add a drop in cold water. Remove from the flame.
- Add the roasted sesame seeds and almonds and mix thoroughly with the melted jaggery. You may need to put off the flame during this process.
- When the mixture is ready, pour the entire mixture over the greased thali or a smooth stone surface. Roll the chikki out into thin sheets using a greased rolling pin.
- When cool, cut into square pieces. Store in an air-tight container.
