Women who are facing anemia problem due to iron deficiency, they must include sesame seeds in their daily diet chart. The iron found in sesame can help prevent iron deficiency and boost low energy levels. And although copper deficiency isn’t as common, sesame seeds provide a good dose of the copper needed per day to maintain nerve, bone and metabolic health.
Sesame seeds are beneficial for post-menopausal women too thanks to their ability to increase and regulate levels of sex hormones, improve antioxidant status, and help manage cholesterol levels to optimize health.

Total Time (Minutes): 20
Til/Sesame - 1 Cup
Sugar - ¾ Cup
Take a pan and dry roast the sesame seeds on low flame.Once they are roasted well,take them out in a plate & keep them aside.It just takes 2 to 3 minutes for roasting the sesame seeds. Make sure you donât over roast the seeds. The sesame seeds turn bitter in taste if over roasted.
In the same pan, add the sugar and melt it until it is golden brown.OR You can use jaggery (Gurr) instead of sugar. Jaggery burns quickly so add little water & take extra care that it does not burn.Keep stirring.
Add in the roasted sesame and stir until it clumps together.
Transfer to a butter paper/ghee greased plate and smoothen the mixture evenly with the help of spoon.
