Til Poli 

This is an Indian roti or poli. It is sweetened with jaggery. It is a delicacy and is especially made during the festival of Makar Sankrant. 

Web www.CuisineCuisine.com

These are specially prepared for Sankrant.  

2 cups cleaned white sesame seeds
2 cups grated jaggery
1 1/2 teaspoon powder of cardamoms
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder
1 1/2 cups flour (maida)
Oil for shallow frying

Rub in 1 1/2 tablespoons oil and a pinch of salt to the flour and knead into a soft dough. Knead the dough well. Cover it with a slightly damp cloth.

Heat the sesame seeds on low heat, stirring continuously until slightly golden brown. If the heat is too high they will splutter. When cooled, pound them coarsely. Add the grated jaggery and pound once more to make the mixture even and smooth. Mix the cardamom and nutmeg powders. Keep aside.

Shape small balls from the ready dough. Place one ball in the left hand palm and make an indentation in the middle. Put a teaspoon of the sesame seed mixture in this hollow. Pull up the sides, gather at the top and press down.

Smear a wooden board with oil, place the stuffed ball on it and roll out into as thin a round as possible.

Using enough oil to shallow fry it on griddle to deep golden color till it is crisp.
