I have made Til wadi / Sesame Brittle along with Sesame Ladoos for this Makar Sankranti. Til has very special importance for this festival. It is said that Til emanates from Vishnu’s body and using Til , wash away all kinds of sins. But as far as I know, Til is very important in cold days and it helps body to prepare for winters.
This Til wadi can be made in sugar syrup , but I prefer Jaggery because Jaggery is healthy option for us. First time I made Til wadis, but I took less proportion of Jaggery , so those wadis or brittles were breaking and not come properly after cooling. So I have taken equal proportion of Til and Jaggery and Til wadis or Til chikkis have come superb and very crispy, too.
Enjoy this Makar Sankranti with goodness of Recipes of Til or Sesame seeds.
