Til/ Sesame Wadi


It was a long break from blogging!! However, I do have some excuses for the same :)
We shifted to our new 'Home' on 6th day of March. We had a small house warming ceremony & all ladies out there will surely be able to wonder what kept me busy! New place, new furniture, shopping, arrangements & what not. Its not all over & is still going on but had a guilt of not blogging anything since many days & my hands took the hold of the keyboard!!

What keeps me at my seat today is also the Quarter Finals between India & Australia! I wish India luck & wish they achieve a golden victory.

I had prepared this sweet in the month of January. It was for the Sankranti festival and the photos were lying in my mobile since then!

Its very easy to prepare but needs lot of attention during preparation & time management as well. But the end result is a crunchy sesame/ til wadi which will surely win appreciation.

Sesame/Til Wadi

Preparation Time: 10 mins               Cooking Time: 3 mins          Making Time: 3 mins


1 cup roasted sesame/ til
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tbspn ghee + some for coating the rolling pin and base

Check the consistency
Step 1: Grease some surface with ghee (I cleaned & used the granite which works best) to pour the mixture. Also grease a rolling pin & keep it ready.
Step 2: Heat a pan. Add half the sugar. Keep stirring till it turns into syrup.
Step 3: Add half the ghee & half the sesame/ til. Mix well for the sesame/ til to get well coated with the syrup. 
Step 4: Pour the mixture on the greased surface & start rolling with the rolling pin. Be careful at this stage. Make it as thin as possible.
Step 5: Repeat the same with rest half the til/ sesame.
Step 6: You can break the sheets later & store in air tight containers.

Few roughly crushed roasted groundnuts can also be added to til/sesame. You can also add some chopped dry fruits of your choice!
The most surprising thing of this sweet is the color. They look like they are prepared using Jaggery/ gul, but the color is of the sugar!
