Time for some sweet memories. It is amazing how the aroma of jaggery and til working together always bring back memories of mom’s cooking. This traditional duo reflects mom’s care not just in taste but also in their nutritional richness. The use of both jaggery and til makes the Til Gur ki Roti an iron-rich treat that helps improve your haemoglobin levels and keeps you active and attentive all the time.

These were too yummy!! My kids and my husband both loved it. With this recipe I learnt that jaggery needs to be cooked in water till it dissolves to get those soft til gur rotis.
