Tilachi Vadi for Makar Sankranti

Wishing everybody A very happy Makar Sankranti, Pongal and Lohri!!!!!!

One more Maharashtrian sweet for Makar Sankranti…. Tilachi Vadi, that means a sweet diamonds from sesame seeds and jaggery.


Sesame Seeds (Til) - 1 cup

Jaggery (Gul) - 1 cup

Pure Ghee - 1 tablespoon


Roast sesame seeds in kadai on low flame. Roast till gets slightly brown. Now Keep this in a plate. Grease a rolling pin and some surface of kitchen platform with little ghee. Pour ghee in hot kadai and add Jaggery ( we use special Jaggery which is called 'Chikkicha Gul' in Marathi). Jaggery will start melting. Boil it till it becomes little thick. Remove it from burner and add roasted sesame. Mix it neatly. Immediately pour the mixture on the greased surface and roll it and flatten it (this action should be very fast else the mixture will become hard after some time). Cut it in square. When it get cool store it in airtight container.
