Til Chikki /Sesame Candy

Sesame seeds are used widely world over owing to its nutritional benefits. So when I wanted to help Aishwarya recuperate after her surgery last week, I made these. This is such a tasty treat that she would have it without any complaints.
Recipe adapted from: showmethecurry
Sesame seeds – 1 and 1/2 cups, dry roasted
Jaggery (gud) – 3/4 cup, powdered
Clarified Butter (Ghee)/Butter – 1 tbsp
Cardamon powder – 1/4 tsp
Milk – 2 tsp
Put jaggery to a thick bottom non stick pan along with ghee and stir continuously over medium heat till jaggery starts to bubble. Add the milk and mix, take the pan off the heat source. Add cardamon Powder and sesame Seeds to the jaggery and mix very well. Transfer this to a greased tray .Press the mixture down making sure it is of even thickness. Cut this in  into desired shape,allow it to cool. Once hard seperate the pieces. Store at room temperature in an air-tight container.
