til bugga

Makar Sankranti is celebrated in almost all the parts of India. In Jaipur people fly kites, make til ladoos, til chikkis, Paush badas and spend the whole day on their roofs.


In Jaipur city whole sky is covered with colorful kites and people fly kites till night. There will be loud music playing on the roofs and food items are supplied on roof only because nobody wants to come inside.


Til have many beneficial properties. It is warm in nature hence a favorite item for winters. It also has high iron content. In earlier times when there were no heaters people used to rely on their diet to fight extreme cold. That is why til items were quite popular in winters. Til ki gazak, til sakri, til patti , chikki, revri and ghazak are some of the popular items made with til.

To make til mawa ladoo

 roast til

Roast the til to a light brown shade. Start at high and then turn the flame on low to roast til.
Leave them aside to cool.
In a non stick pan cook mawa for around 5 minutes. I have explained the process in my gunjiya recipe with pics you can see that to understand the process. Switch off the gas when mawa comes together.

grind til
While the mawa is cooling down grind the til to a coarse mixture.

Add til and boora to the mawa. Mix thoroughly. Shape into balls to make ladoos.

Note: Do not leave mawa for cooling down for a long time as in winters it cools quickly and you will have problem in making ladoos.
If this happens heat the mixture again to make it soft and to make ladoos. Or you can add 2 tbsp of milk to it to make ladoos.

til mawa burfi

Or you can simply spread the mixture in a greased thali and cut burfis later.

    Dear I need your advice!!! I made the ladoos using your proportions but they have turned out hard. Where could I have gone wrong? TIA

    • Nidhi says:

      HI Meena. May be mawa was cooked more than was required. you can add 1-2 tbsp of warm milk to the mixture to make Ladoos. Hope this helps.

      You are welcome Divya :-)
      For making mawa at home boil milk in a thick bottomed pan and after boiling let it simmer on low flame. the process takes more than one hour you just keep on stirring milk in between. keep on cooking till mixture reaches a semi solid consistency and starts coming together. you can check the following link also. Hope this helps will try to put a post on making mawa soon :-)
