Til Gud ke Laddu

Til Gud ke laddu or Til ki Chikki is a healthy, delicious, and nutty treat prepared with white sesame seeds, jaggery and peanuts. 

A vegan recipe and also a Makar Sankranti festival special sweet.

Makar Sakranti is around the corner and so I thought of sharing my family favorite til gud ke chikki recipe with you all.

Til Gud ki Chikki

Growing up in Punjabi family in UP during Lohri and Makar Sankranti my grandfather always make some yummy chikki as well laddoo. They used to prepare marunda that is made with jaggery & murmuraa or channe gud laddoo or til ki chikki and many more.

Til Gud ke Ladoo or Til ki Chikki in actual term means "Til" is sesame seeds or "Gud" is a Hindi word and for jaggery in English).

The til ke laddu recipe also features peanuts. Sesame seeds, jaggery and peanuts are a truly winning combination in terms of taste and flavor. 

You can add any dry fruits in chikki, If you like, then do check this Honey Nut Brittle made with honey and dry fruits or easy Oats Sesame Fudge Recipe which is made with ground sesame seeds, oats and jaggery.

Til ke laddu makes for a good warming sweet snack during the winters. Make them, store them, and have them whenever you want.
