  • wok
  • spatula
  • any flat surface (I used back of big thali or pizza pan will also do.)
  • Rolling Pin


  • 1 cup sesame seed til
  • ¾ cup jaggery gur
  • 2 tbs ghee or oil
  • 3 tbs oil for greasing


  • Grease heavily the back of a big heavy bottomed pizza pan or thali and rolling pin, with two tbs spoon oil. (See notes)
  • Dry roast sesame seed in a heavy-bottomed pan on medium-low flame for 3-4 minutes with constant stirring until light toasted. Remove toasted seeds to o a plate and set aside.
  • Keep a bowl with water ready for testing jaggery caremelization.
  • Put grated jaggery in a heavy-bottomed wok. Melt jaggery on medium flame, while stirring constantly. When jaggery is melted, drizzle oil along the side of the wok. Keep stirring.
  • Now increase the heat to medium-high so jaggery starts bubbling and caramelizing, stir well so jaggery is uniformly caramelized.
  • Test jaggery in water by dropping a small drop and then press it. If the drop form a soft lump, cook more. If it turns hard immediately then your jaggery is ready.
  • Mix in roasted sesame seeds and quickly pour all mixture on greased thali. With greased rolling pin make ⅛ inch flat sheet.
  • Apply a thin layer of oil on top of the brittle for the glazed look. 
  • Make cutting marks while the brittle is still hot. Let the brittle cool completing before removing from thali.
  • Store in airtight container at room temperature.
