Sesame seeds is mainly used in month of January(month to honor the harvest) during festivals of Indians. Til/sesame and jaggery are winter perfect food which increases immunity and keeps body warm. Great snack for kids and has a good shelf life. During winters I do in batches and keep it for snacks cravings.
