Tilkut – Gur / गुड़ तिलकुट
Tilkut 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. The more the seed, the softer, better and amorphous it is.
