Tilkut Sugar


Tilkut is a sweet made in the Indian states of Bihar and Jharkhand.

Tilkut is specially made and eaten during "Makar Sankranti" festival. This is also known as "Tilkatri".
It is made of pounded 'til' or sesame seeds(Sesamum indicum) and jaggery or sugar.

The best is said to be from Gaya and is native to Magadh region only. Reference to this dry sweet is found in the Buddhist literature as palala.

Normally, three types are available — the refined Sugar is white in colour, the Shakkar one is made of unrefined sugar and is light brown in colour and the Gur is made of jaggery and is dark brown in colour. Each of these varieties has its own flavour.

The circular-shaped savoury is called tilkut and the smaller nut-sized ones are called tillouri.

Winter is the period when sugarcane is harvested. It is also when large quantities of it are made in many towns and even villages. However, as the demand persists throughout the year, smaller quantities are made around the year.

It is generally associated with Makar Sankranti, the harvest festival and eaten during this time.

Note - Please note there's no refund/replacement on Tilkut.
