Sesame seeds are extremely nutritious.
A 1/4-cup serving of sesame seeds provides 126-mg of magnesium, or 32 percent of the Daily Value (DV), and a whopping 351-mg of calcium (35 percent of the DV and slightly more than is provided in 1-cup of milk).
Magnesium and calcium are important minerals that help lower blood pressure, reduce the frequency and intensity of tension and migraine headaches (triggered by blood vessel spasms), reduce airway spasms in asthmatics, and regulate the sleep patterns of women suffering from menopause-induced sleep disturbances (a possible side effect of menopause). In addition, calcium is essential for bone structure and health, and has been shown to offer protection against colon cancer.

Here is the all time favourite chikki using these wonder seeds.

  • Sesame seeds-1cup

  • Grated Jaggery or sugar-1cup

  • Ghee=1tsp
Dry roast the sesame seeds on medium flame till golden brown.
  The seeds start popping when rosated well.Switch off flame.

 Heat pan.Add ghee and grated jaggery.Boil for about 2 mins till it reaches a hard ball consistancy.
To check.put a drop of the jaggery in a cup of water.It instantly forms a hard ball.

 Now pour in the sesame seeds and mix well.Switch off flame and immediately pour on to a greased tray and flatten immediately.
I greased the bottom side of a steel glass and used it to flatten out the chikki.
Make cuts on the chikki to desired shapes.

 Cool and break into pieces.
