Til Khajoor Rolls(Sesame seeds & Date Rolls)

Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category:

Wish U All A Very Happy Belated 'Makar Sankranti' & 'Pongal'. Wish u all had a wonderfull time.This is my 250th post so i am very happy posting a Sankranti special sweet recipe. During sankranti  sweets made of til (sesame seeds) & jaggery are enjoyed here. It has a reason behind it it, as Sankranti is always during winter season this sesame seeds are good to eat during winter. Many sweets are made using this sesame seeds and jaggery like ladoos, burfis etc.I am posting a recipe of sesame seeds and jaggery, but i have also added dates in it which make them more nutritious and healthy. As adding dates will decrease the amount of jaggery to be used and also increase its taste. Poppy seeds also adds to the taste and give them a nice crunch.They can be prepared in no time.


  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds (Til  )
  • 2 table spoons of poppy seeds
  • 10 seedless dates chopped finely
  • 1/2 cup jaggery
  • 4 tea spoon pure ghee

Heat a non stick pan and add sesame seeds and dry roast them on low fire for 3 to 4 mins. Now add 1 tea spoon of ghee and continue roasting them till aroma comes and they are done.They should become very light brown, do not allow them to get burned.Remove them from kadai and keep aside.Now add poppy seeds and roast dry for 2 to 3 mins. Add little ghee and again roast for sometime till they are done.Remove and keep them aside.

Heat a pan and add chopped jaggery and let it get melted.When its melted add sesame seeds and chopped dates.Saute and cook for some time till mixture gets mixed well. Do not allow the jaggery to get burned. when its mixed fully remove it from fire.

Grease a plate with ghee and put this mixture on it. Let it cool for 2 mins then grease hands with ghee. Remove little mixture from it and roll it in hands to form long fingers. Roll it in poppy seeds and keep aside.Handle the mixture carefully as it will be hot.You should not allow mixture to get much cooled, as it hardens when it cools and will be difficult to shape into rolls. When rolls are ready let them cool.

You can enjoy them, they remain fresh without refrigeration for 10 days.

Preparation Time : 20 mins
