My Take :
  • Ghee enhances the taste of tilgul chikki, but you can
    make it without ghee as per your taste.
  • Make sure you don’t over roast the seeds. The sesame seeds turn bitter in taste if over roasted.
  • The size and shape of chikki can be small or big as you like .
  • Store this barfi in airtight container and it can be edible for more than a month.
  • To separate out the chunks from the plate, reheat the plate slightly over the flame.
