Til Chikki/Sesame Seeds Candy

Sesame seeds are wonderful to eat in the winter, it warms up the body and no wonder they are eaten so much in India in the cold season.

1 cup white sesame seeds
1 cup/ 200 gms jaggery
1 tbps ghee

Roast the seeds on a low flame till golden.
Add ghee to the pan, add crumbled jaggery and stir continously to melt. Remember not to add big chunks of jaggery as it will take a long time to melt and will burn too.
Once melted and starts foaming a little, add the seeds, stir well. Pour on a greased cookie tin or flat surface.
Roll it out a little to shape it using a greased roling pin.
Once it is a little cool cut into squares and serve. Yummy!!!
