Dryfruits Sesame Bar (Dryfruits Til Chikki)
Jaggery or Gud or Bellam 3/4th cup
Black Sesame seeds or Nalla Nuvvulu 1/2 cup
Dryfruits 1/4 cup (mixture of Baddam, Kaaju & Khishmish)
3tsp Ghee (I used cow ghee)
Little water (If required)
- Grate Jaggery and keep aside.
- Grind or grate dryfruits too and keep aside (as shown in above pic)
- Roast sesame seeds till they turn into light golden color (which acutually not much visible as golden color, but can find out when they start changing color, so roast for few minutes)
- Roast dryfruits too, separately not with sesame seeds. Allow to cool them both.
- Take a flat plate or on any flat surface, grease it with 1 tsp of ghee.
- Heat 2 tsp of ghee in a container, and add grated Jaggery to it. Stir continously, untill it melts completely and should become thick enough for makking chikkis. Just as we do for sugar syrup. But see that, If you put a drop in the syrup it should form a hard ball.
- Remove from the heat and add roasted sesame seeds and dryfruits and mix well.
- While the jaggery melts, if you think the syrup is less for making chikkis, add 1/4th cup of water and heat till syrup consistency. Or elase can take little more jaggery if needed.
- Pour the above mixture on the greases surface and roll with greased rolling pin. (Here I greased the chapathi making pin with little ghee and rolled over the mixture)
- Cut them into diamond or square or any other desired shape after it cools down. Healthy, rich in calcium Chikkis are ready to serve for children or any body as a snak or a sweet:-)
Note: Out of this praportion, I got 20'no chikki's. If you make more than store in a airtight container for long freshness.
