Khowa Tilkut / खोआ तिलकुट


Out of stock

Tilkut khowa is a sweet savoury made in the Indian states of Bihar and Jharkhand. This is made of pounded ’tila’ or sesame seed and is available only in winters. A thick hard base of sugar of the size of a tennis ball is rolled in copious amount of sesame seed and then hammered to roll out in round shape. Later Khoa (condesnsed milk) is added to it which makes tilkut in cylindrical shape. The more the seed, the softer, better and amorphous it is.

Made of a mix of lintel, sugar, khowa in the right proportions and heated at an optimum temperature in cold but dry weather, skillfully hammered, the tilkut-making needs specialized skill found mainly in Gaya town.

I received soggy/hawa-laga Tilkut. It was sourced from a reputed store in Gaya, Bihar and it was packed well and had not broken. Also, it was delivered on time. Unfortunately, the quality was not good :(
