I have learnt this from my Atya ,a very simple recipe of Til barfi.
Ingredients: 1 cup unpolished white sesame seeds,1 cup chikki jaggery,a tsp of ghee,1 /2 tsp cardamom powder ( optional ).
Unpolished white sesame seeds look brownish in colour.
Method : Dry roast sesame seeds till they start spluttering.Put off gas.Keep turning the seeds with a ladle even though gas is off.Keep aside.
In a pan ,heat the chikki jagerry till it melts completely.Be careful as this chikki jaggery melts fast.If it gets overheated,it will get hard.Put off gas.
Add the roasted sesame seeds.Add cardamom powder.Mix nicely till all seeds are coated with jaggery. Take a plate to which ghee has been applied all over on the surface.Now remove the semisolid jaggery sesome mixture with ladle & on to a plate.Roll the mixture with a chappati rolling pin to spread the mixture evenly.Then cut into desired shapes.
Nowadays I have started using ordinary jaggery in place of chikki jaggery & it turns out equally good ! And following Sangeeta Khanna's recipe, I use 1 cup til & half a cup jaggery. The idea is to make it less sweet & more nutritious !
