Sesame Bar or Sesame Chikki

Sesame chikki is very nutritious and good for health. Sesame seeds are rich in oil  and proteins. These are used in various cuisines all around the world..


What you need:

Sesame seeds-3/4 of a cup
Grated jaggery-1 cup
Sugar-1 tablespoon
Ghee-1 tablespoon
Cardamom powder- 1 teaspoon
Oil-1 teaspoon to grease the plate



  1. Dry roast the sesame seeds on a low flame until they turn light brown in colour.  Allow them to cool and grease a plate with oil and keep it aside.
  2. Melt the jaggery in a non stick pan or heavy bottomed vessel. Filter it using a stainless steel net and add the sugar. Boil it again to get a thick syrup. 
  3. Check the consistency of the syrup by dropping a drop of it in a bowl of water. It should form a hard ball.
  4. Add the ghee, sesame seeds and cardamom powder to the syrup and mix it well.
  5. Turn off the stove and pour this mixture onto the greased plate. Allow it to cool for 15-20 minutes Once it has dried, break it into pieces and store them in an air tight container.
          Note: If you avoid filtering the melted jaggery, you may find sand in your chikki.
