sesame brittle / til ki chikki

200 gm til (white sesame seeds)
500 gm jaggery
1 cup water
1 greased dish to set the chikki

Dissolve the jaggery in water. Let it come to a boil.
In the meanwhile, roast the til in a kadai.
Check the syrup now. Let the syrup thicken so that when a drop of it is dropped in a bowl of cold water, it forms a lump.
To this syrup, add til and stir well. Cook for a minute and remove from heat.
Pour in the prepared dish to set. Let it cool. Once it cools down, cut into desired shapes. Let it cool further so that it hardens.
This is a Makar Sankranti recipe :)
