Preparation Time: 10-15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Over a medium flame, lightly roast the sesame seeds for a few minutes or until the light brown in color.
Once done, keep the seeds aside to cool and then repeat the process with the almonds.
Grease the back of a flat plate with a little ghee and keep it aside.
Next, in a pan, heat the ghee and then add the jaggery.
Simmer under low flame until the entire jaggery melts and caramelizes such that it forms a hard ball when you place a drop in cold water.
Once the jaggery is melted, mix it thoroughly with the roasted seeds and almonds. Next, pour the entire mixture over the greased plate and roll it into thin sheets with the help of a greased rolling pin.
Allow it to cool for some time and then cut it into square pieces.
