A quick Indian sweet made with sesame seeds, khoya and sugar.

Ingredients of Til ki Barfee

  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/4 cup khoya
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • A greased plate to set the barfee in.

How to Make Til ki Barfee

  • 1.1. Roast the seeds on a griddle till they start to splutter and take on just a suggestion of colour.
  • 2.2. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool. Place a heavy-based pan on the stove.
  • 3.3. Put in the ghee and the khoya and sauté till it appears to be of a uniform consistency and looks slightly fried.
  • 4.4. Take off the heat; add the roasted sesame seeds and leave to cool.
  • 5.5. In another pan, warm the sugar and water together over low heat, stirring a few times till the sugar dissolves.
  • 6.6. Make sure not to let it boil before the sugar dissolves. Once the sugar dissolves, let the syrup boil over high heat till it thickens. To test, a drop of syrup in cold water should fall like a blob, ---soft ball consistency.
  • 7.7. Mix immediately into the cooled khoya mixture, stirring vigorously to blend well.
  • 8.8. As you mix it in, it will begin to set, so it is essential to blend it in as fast as you can.
  • 9.9. Transfer on to the greased plate, pat to level, and leave to cool and set.
  • 10.10. Cut into pieces of desired size, using a sharp knife.
  • 11.11. Arrange in a serving dish and serve. Can be stored in an airtight container for 8-10 days or more.
