Talk about “Til ke ladoo” and the first thing that comes to your mind is “Makar Sankranti”. It is January and Winters are normally packing their bags to retreat. But the weather usually is nice with the slightly cool northern wind blowing. There are a lot of other festivals during this same time, with Lohri being another prominent one.

The smell in the air during this time of the year itself reminds you of all the “Ghazaks”, “Til ke ladoos” and “Til Kathris”. As we enter December, I thought why not start preparing for the fantastic time of the year.

Til or, “Sesame Seeds” has numerous health benefits as well. In the Northern part of India where the winters are very cold, it is believed that Til keeps the body warm.
