Til Chikki

I made Til Ki Chikki for everyone back home before leaving for Goa. This was my first attempt at making chikki...It was the simple recipe on Kailas Kitchen which got me into making it.

I followed her recipe word to word, hence am not posting the recipe. Just the final pic...


Vedict: Chikkis came out very crisp. Everybody at home loved the chikki, execpt that my MIL's tooth cap broke eating them ;)

My trip took me to Mumbai, Nasik and Pune before I actually reached Goa. We happened to be in Pune a day before the Ganesh festival. Huge pandaals were erected for the Sarvajink Ganesh...would have loved to click some pics, but the entire place was so crowded that standing at a place stationary to click a snap seemed quite a daunting task. I managed this one at a Ganesh shop


I visisted a few friends during the festival and clicked some pics...








On my way back via B'lore, was lucky to visit this sarvajanik Ganesh...

Hi Nidhi, chikkis look yummy. Take it off the flame a little earlier and you won't have tooth episodes :-)

The Vinayaka pictures are so lovely...

Indeed it was lovely to visit these places around Ganesh chaturthi.
Gal the next thing on my mind was to make Til ke Ladus, but was wondering how I was going to roll the hot jaggery+til mix. I hope you have a post on the ladoos.

Thanks!!!

~vegetable platter
Thanks dear. She had make more of these actually. I guess it was just incidental that the cap broke while eating my chikkis :(

~srikar's kitchen
Thanks Sri!

~Dershana
Actually I wonder if the cap breaking had to do with my chikkis. Coz they came out just perfect with nothing at all to complain abt. Guess it was just incidental. BTW MIL had me make more of these.
