Tilkut- Makar Sankranti Special

Last Updated on

Tilkut is a sweet recipe which mostly popular
in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand. It is made with two simple
ingredients are white sesame seeds and powdered sugar known as bura in Hindi. For
flavoring you can add almond powder and cardamom powder.
Traditionally Tilkuts made in two different
flavors like white tilkut in which sesame seeds mix with white sugar powder, Gur
tilkut is made with jaggery and sesame seeds. Tilkut is generally prepared in
my family on the occasion of Makar Sankranti.
Sesame seeds are crunchy and nutty in flavor and available in two colors white and black but for this recipe we prefer only
white.  Sesame seeds are important sources of phyto-nutrients such as
omega-6 fatty acids, flavonoid phenolic anti-oxidants, vitamins, and dietary
fiber with potential anti-cancer as well as health promoting properties.
