Tilgul is a colourful sesame candy coated with sesame seeds; in Maharashtra people exchange tilgul on Sankranti, a Hindu festival celebrated on 14 January. The sweet is a mixture of seasame seed and jaggery and hence the name. Tilgul Poli is a sweet roti made with sesameseeds and jaggery filling and wheat flour outercover. One of my friend is a Beautician and also she is a Maharashtrian. When I met her couple of days back, I was discussing with her regarding Sanakaranti and the tradition followed in Maharashtra. In the middle of the discussion, she explained to me about this delectable sweet dish Tilgul Poli which is a sweet roti made of wheat flour, jaggery, peanuts, besan and sesameseeds. It sounds similar to our traditional Puran Poli made of channa dal. I eagerly learnt the procedure from her and made this delicious dish today. It turned out awesome. My kids loved the taste of this poli. Out sweet tooth will tell the delight of biting this crispy and warm Tilgul Poli!

Method:
  1. Take a mixing bowl, add wheat flour and salt and mix well. Make a hole in the middle and add hot ghee or oil and using a spoon, mix everything well. The flour will become like a crumbled mixture. 

  2. To this, now add, water little by little and knead it to a tough and smooth dough like we make dough for poori. Cover and set this aside for 30 minutes

  3. Lets prepare the filling now. Heat a pan and add sesame seeds and dry roast the sesameseeds till it becomes light brown color. Take it out and allow it to cool. Then add 2 tablespoon of ghee and add besan and roast the besan in ghee till you get a nice aroma and the raw smell of the besan goes off. Switch off the flame

  4. In a mixer jar, take roasted peanuts along with cardamom and grind it to a nice powder. Then add roasted and cooled sesame seeds along with roasted besan. Add the nutmeg powder and again grind everything to a smooth powder. 

  5. Finally add grated jaggery and give a pulse or two for the jaggery to mix with the ground powder.Make equal sized balls out of this filling and set this aside

  6. Take the dough after 30 minutes and then make 11 equal sized balls out of it. Take a dough ball, dust with wheat flour and knead it to 2" roti. 

  7. Place a filling ball in the center of the rolled roti and then bring all the edges together and seal the filling. Again dust with flour and knead gently to 4" roti. Repeat the same for rest of the dough ball and filling. 

  8. Heat a tawa and place a rolled sweet roti. Add a teaspoon of ghee around the roti and cook on both the sides. Apply ghee and take the cooked roti out in a plate. Repeat the same and cook the rest of the poli

  9. The delicious Tilgul is now ready to serve!. Serve the warm Tilgul with ghee as topping and enjoy the dish!
