Til ki chikki / Til patti / Sesame Brittle

Sesame brittle / Til ki chikki 
Sesame seed and melted sugar makes this most beautiful shiny tile like looking crunchy snack. The pieces are firm yet brittle when you snap it with your fingers, u can hear the crispness when it breaks. I am sure all Indians who grew up in the 80s -90s and before would have tried this at least once. A snack cleverly made to get all the required calcium of course sweet coated. I don't see these in bakeries getting VIP seats in glass cases or jars anymore those seats are all swamped by the sickening frosted cakes and no purpose flour cookies.

So here is some old fashioned snack and reviving old world charm.

Baked yogurt kabab / Dahi ka Kabab / High protein diet

Yogurt Kabab/ Dahi ke Kabab is an ideal Indian snack /short eat to go with a hot cup of tea especially during  rainy season. Just the right thing to make me feel better on a gloomy, dark and snowy day.The kabab is not too spicy and has a slight tang from the Greek yogurt used and whole crushed chick peas gives it the crunch. The yogurt and chickpeas combination makes the kabab a high protein healthy baked savory snack which can be enjoyed anytime of the day.

5 Favorite Holiday Cookies

Holiday cookies made with everything available in your pantry. I like to use random things to give shape to cookies like bottle caps for the rounds, glass bottles for impressions, scissors for the cinnamon cookies and small serving tongs for the dates cookies. You wont need cookie cutters for any of these cookies. But if u have them feel free to use it.
