About this Recipe

One of the most popular Makar Sankranti recipes is the 'til-gud' or 'til ki barfi'. Both the primary ingredients used in this recipe are believed to keep the body warm and their consumption is considered to be beneficial during the cold months. But since sesame and sugar are high in calories, I put my own twist by substituting a portion of the sesame with buckwheat flour.

Ingredients & Quantity
  • 1 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 3 tbsp jaggery
  • 1/4 cup date syrup
  • 1 tsp ghee
  • extra sesame seeds for garnishing
How to cook?
  1. Toast the sesame seeds on a skillet. Remove from flame and allow to cool down. Grind into a fine powder.
  2. Heat 1 tsp ghee in a wok. Add the buckwheat flour and roast on a low flame till the flour takes on a pink color. Remove and keep aside.
  3. Add the powdered jaggery and date syrup along with 1 cup of water to a wok. Bring to a boil and let it boil for 3-4 mins
  4. Add the roasted buckwheat flour and powdered sesame seeds. Cook for another 2-3 mins before removing from the flames.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining sesame seeds on a greased plate. Spread the halwa over the seeds and let it cool down before cutting into desired shapes.
  6. Store in a airtight container in the fridge. Consume within the week.
