TIL CHIKKI | SESAME SEEDS BRITTLE

Makar Sankranti is one of the most auspicious days for the Hindus, and is celebrated across the country with great zeal & devotion.
It signifies the end of winter and the beginning of spring.
Sankranti represents the beginning of the farming season, hence its celebrated across the country by everyone.
It is the harvest festival and the farmers pray to be blessed with abundance of harvests.
The festivities associated with Makar Sankranti are known by various names such as Lohri by north Indian Hindus and Sikhs, Sukarat in central India, Bhogali Bihu by Assamese Hindus, and Pongal by Tamils and Makar Sankranti by others including in the states of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.
No Makar Sankranti celebrations are ever complete without til and gur (sesame seeds and jaggery)

Adapted from google –
In fact, til and gur are much more than just festive ingredients as they have a strong cultural and significant link with Sankranti celebrations.
Til and gur are also prized in Ayurveda as two of the most winter-perfect foods that helps to keep the body warm and also increases the immunity at the same time.
Sesame is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, healthy oils. It is also a good source of protein.
The oil present in the sesame seeds helps generate body heat and keeps the internal body temperature from dipping. At the same time, jaggery’s iron and vitamin C content has also been used as a traditional remedy for respiratory disorders and throat problems.
