Til Khoya Chakli | Sesame Brittle
Til Khoya Chakli is a winter sweet made during the Lohri in North. I was planning on making a burfi and kept procrastinating until the last moment. Then suddenly realised I might as well make a brittle after remembering my recent caramel making.
So it turned out to be Sesame Brittle. I love brittles and enjoy making with all nuts and seeds. We mostly buy sesame balls or chaklis. My version now turned out exactly the same as the secret is adding ghee to the syrup.
Today’s sweet is for the Festival Theme I am doing for Bm#72, for Lohri that’ss celebrated in North. Even in south we make dishes with Sesame Seeds during Sankranthi.

Til Khoya Chakli
Til Chakli or Sesame Brittle is made during the winter season and especially during Lohri festival.
Heat a nonstick pan and dry roast the sesame seeds till it crackles. This takes about 2 mins. Remove to a plate.
In the same nonstick pan heat ghee and mawa. Cook till it melts down. When it turns liquid, add the roasted sesame seeds.
Mix well and remove to the plate. Now in the same pan, add the sugar and keep stirring till it caramelizes.
Meanwhile have a plate greased with ghee.
When it becomes a nice amber colour, add the roasted sesame seeds and khoya. Simmer and cook for 2 mins, the mixture turns hard.
Immediately pour the mixture into the greased plate. Allow to cool. With greased knife make marks or smaller pieces.
I got about ten 2 inch brittles.
