Til Gajak
Til Gajak is what Lohris are made up of! The mixing of the sesame seeds with the jaggery with a hint of ghee makes this such an awesome dish!
  1. Dry roast the sesame seeds till they start crackling a little and keep aside.
  2. Grind or cut jaggery coarsely and mix with water and bring to boil, lower the gas and simmer till it becomes a thick syrup. The test here should be to cook it till forms a ball when you drop a little in chilled water.
  3. See the big ball kinds in the above water, like that. Ignore the brownish liquid that was formed by the test I did before, when the liquid was not cooked. At the time it will immediately spread and color the water like you see. It will take approx of 7-10 minutes.
  4. At this stage, add the sesame seeds, ghee and cardamom powder and mix well.
  5. Immediately pour over a greased tray and leave for setting
  6. Leave it for setting for about 30 minutes and cut into desired shapes and of course eat and lift your senses!
Recipe Notes

Note: I used dark brown jaggery because thats what I had at home, u can go ahead and use the normal jaggery.
