Til Wadi | Sesame Brittle Recipe

Sesame Brittle
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.
Sesame Brittle
Til gul wadi

1 cup sesame seeds/til
1 cup Jaggery /gur
1 tsp. ghee
1/2 tsp. ghee for greasing
1.Roast the sesame seeds till they are light golden in color. Cool and keep aside.
2.Heat the ghee in a pan and add the Jaggery.
3.Simmer over a slow flame till it caramelizes and forms a hard ball when you add a drop of syrup in cold water. This process will take 3-4 minutes , first it will make soft ball, after stirring few seconds, try again, and it will become hard ball. If that ball make sound when dropped on floor, that means your Jaggery syrup for Til ladoo is done.
4.Add the roasted til and mix it thoroughly with the melted Jaggery. Put out the flame off during this process.
5.Grease back part of any plate , I prefer steel plate, with ghee. And pour Til and Jaggery mixture on it. Spread evenly on surface with roller or bottom of any bowl. Before grease roller or bottom of bowl with ghee.
6.Give shape to wadis by drawing lines with knife on speeded Til mixture. I prefer square or diamond shapes of Til wadis.
7.After 15-20 minutes cooling off, all Til wadis will come out nicely. You can store them for many days.
