Step By Step Method

  • Sesame seeds are roasted till aromatic and have a crispy feel to it. Ghee is heated in a deep non-stick pan and chopped jaggery is stirred in the ghee and melted away to a uniform consistency on medium flame for 3 minutes. The heat source is turned out and the sesame seeds are mixed in the jaggery ghee mixture. This is now spread over the back of a greased thali with a greased rolling pin. It is rolled out to a thin sheet, say about 8 inch in diameter. A sharp knife is run over it to get 1 ½ inch pieces of the sesame chikki.
