Til-Gud Vadi

Warm up your tummies during this winter with this healthy packed with lots of iron and protein and very simple tilgul vadi! Happy Makar Sankranti, Pongal and Uttarayan!



  1. 3 cups roasted and roughly crushed Sesame seeds (Til);
  2. 1 cup roasted and crushed peanuts (Shengdane);
  3. 2 cups chopped jaggery (gud);
  4. ½ tbsp Water;
  5. 1 tbsp grated dried coconut (khobra);
  6. ½ tsp cardamom powder,
  7. 1 tbsp clarified butter (ghee).


  1. Take a flat tray and grease it with some ghee. Keep Aside.
  2. In a non-stick pan, add a tablespoon of water to quickly coat the surface and put the utensil on a high flame.
  3. Immediately add the chopped jaggery to it and keep stirring frequently on the flame until the jaggery has completely dissolved.
  4. Further keep stirring the syrup on heat, until the syrup reaches a consistency such that if released with a spoon from a height, it falls off as big drops.
  5. At this stage, turn of the heat and quickly add the crushed sesame seeds, crushed peanuts and cardamom powder and mix well very quickly with firm strokes.
  6. Add one tablespoon ghee and keep mixing with firm strokes.
  7. Pour the hot mixture into the greased tray.
  8. Spread out the mixture quickly and uniformly with the help of a flat bowl to make a thick layer.
  9. Spread the grated dried coconut uniformly over the mixture while the mixture is still hot and press lightly, so that the coconut sticks to the vadis.
  10. Cool just for a minute or two and cut out small squares using a knife.
  11. Separate the squares once the mixture is cooled and your til-gud vadi is ready.
