Buckwheat And Sesame Halwa

Buckwheat And Sesame Halwa - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
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.
