Tilgulachi Poli is a sweet flatbread that is just perfect for those cold wintery evenings. A roti or flatbread which sandwiches a hidden core of roasted coconut, sesame seeds and jaggery, what’s not to love about it?
This dish is made during the festival of Makar Sankranti – a Hindu festival which marks the end of the winter period and the beginning of the new harvest season. I’m usually super happy to celebrate the festival considering it signals that spring is round the corner. End of Winter is where I stopped reading whilst chomping on these delicious and super addictive Tilgulachi Poli.
Sesame and jaggery should definitely be on your grocery lists during winter. They both help give warmth and retain it well in our bodies. They are also a great source of energy. A perfect dessert during the winters to ward off those colds and chesty coughs. This dish brings that perfect nutty sesame goodness to your winters.
Do you constantly get the munchies, especially in winters? If you answered Yes then this flatbread will keep you warm and feeling full for longer. But be sure to serve these goodies hot and with plenty of warm ghee. Don’t be stingy with ghee or butter, your body needs it.
