Hello foodies………this is my first post in this New Year! So, I want to wish you
Happy New Year!
Actually, I was waiting for these festive days! I want to share the recipes, which I have made for Lohri and Makar Sankranti! Today, I’m going to share a very easy recipe that I have learned recently. I think, many of you make it in home. So, if I got any mistake or something makes it better, please tell me! Here I go……..

Til ke Laddu

 

Ingredients

  1. Sesame seeds (til):            1 1/2 cups
  2. Jaggery (gur) (chopped):    1 cup
  3. Crushed peanuts:               1/4 cup

Method 

 
Sesame (Til)

  • Roast the sesame seeds till they are light golden in color. Cool and keep aside.
  • Heat a pan and add the jaggery.
  • Simmer over a slow flame till it caramelizes.
  • Add the roasted til and peanuts and mix it thoroughly with the melted jaggery. You may need to put out the flame during this process

Today’s Tips

1. If fish is to be stored for more than a day, clean it, rub with salt, turmeric and if liked, a dash of vinegar before freezing.

2. In winter, dry-face is a big problem! Take equal amount each of Melon, Pumpkin, Cucumber and Watermelon and make a paste of these. Then blend it with milk cream and apply it on your. After 1 hr rinse your face with plane water and see the magic!
