Sesame Seed Chikki Recipe – Til Chikki Recipe – Ellu Mittai Recipe with step wise pictures.
Healthy snack for your kids. This chikki turned out perfect. The crunchyness from the sesame seeds and the sweetness were just right.
I have been waiting to make all types of chikki for a very long time. Finally i made my first ever chikki using sesame seeds. And it was a huge success. My mom and grandma loved it so much, they finished it in no time at all. I am yet to make chikki with peanuts, gram dal and other nuts too.
Ellu urundai is one of our staple sweets during festivals like ganesh chaturthi or krishna jayanthy. I have already made a no cook version of this before, check out my ellu urundai recipe.That is a easy version, I made it like a chikki. But this is quite different and it is my grandma’s recipe. The main thing is you can store this for so many days in a air tight container and have it daily since sesame seeds are so good for you.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
