Tilgul...


A sesame and jaggry sweet that is made and offered to the guests and neighbors on this festive day of Sankranti. Some homes add few peanuts and dried coconut (copra) to this too, ideally a combination that helps keep the body warm in the winter due to these heat generating ingredients, a healthy sweet to enjoy for sure!!

It is widely believed that offering this sweet brings sweetness to the relationships, so here is the offering to the BDP patrons, Happy Sankranti!!

Thank you for sharing this, Rajesh, but, sadly, I can't taste it via cyberspace!!!
