ABOUT Tilkut (A dry chutney /podi made with black sesame seeds) RECIPE

This condiment is a unique one made with a special kind of sesame seeds.These are a bit elongated than the normal ones. Hence I have added a picture of that as well. This can be used in any vegetables or whole dals as it enhances the flavour incredibly. It is a must have in any Kokni/Marathi home. Just a tablespoon added is enough.
