1 cup Sesame Seeds
3/4 cup Jaggery
2 tbsp Ghee
1/2 tsp Cardamom Powder
1/2 cup Water

How to make Til Gajak

Roast the sesame seeds on a pan kept on a low flame.
Keep stirring constantly to prevent the seeds from spluttering.
After roasting the sesame seeds, allow them to cool down and then pound them.
Prepare thick syrup of jaggery by boiling it with 1/2 cup water on a low flame.
Take out the roasted and pounded sesame seeds from the pan and add them to the syrup.
Spread a thin layer of oil on a rolling board.
Spread the sesame-jaggery mixture over the oil film. Press it to 1 cm thickness.
Cool the mixture sufficiently and cut it into square pieces.
Til Gajak is ready to be eaten.
