#Quick and #easy #recipe#Tilachi Vadi, #tilgul with #jaggery #sesame seeds in #America for #Makar #Sankrant or #Sankranthi Tilachi Vadi , especially for Makar Sankrant!

Food and festivals have always gone hand in hand for me and I have often wondered why specific foods are eaten during a particular festival.

For Makar Sankrant festival, foods are made with sesame seeds and jaggery. Tilachi vadi or Tilgul is one of the popular sweets distributed among friends at such time. Til is sesame seeds and gul is jaggery. According to Ayurveda, sesame seeds and jaggery generate heat in our bodies in the winter and also help restore energy and vigor. That explains its importance during Makar Sankrant festival. In Maharashtra,India, people exchange Tilgul saying, “Tilgul Ghya goad bola” to mean “Let’s forget any misgivings of the past and become good friends”
