Til ki chikki is made in Northern India for Sankranti and Lohri while in Gujarat for Uttarayan they also make this til ki chikki .My Gujarati friend told me about how they celebrate this festival.They would make the chikki and go for kite flying .Later In the evening they make Undhiyo and Jalebi for dinner and lots of guests would come to celebrate it together.

For Sankranti and Lohri, us in our home would always buy the til chikki,peanuts,peanuts chikki,murmura ladoo and make some popcorns.I have never tried making the til chikki at home .This was the first time and let me tell you I am quite happy with the results.Next time I will try til chikki with jaggery and from now on I am never going to buy this chikki.
