Makar Sankranti is one of the important festivals celebrated in different names in different parts of our country. Different sweets like  pongal, poli, ubbattu, payasam or chikkis are made using jaggery. According to Āyurvēda, eating sesame seeds in winter is beneficial for our health. Spiritually, sesame seeds and sesame oil have the ability to absorb and emit Sattva frequencies more than any other oil. On the day of Bhogi, traditionally Poli is made in all homes. I made poli with til (sesame seeds) and Gud ( jaggery) as stuffing and used jowar flour for the outer layer. 




  1. Mix jowar flour, wheat flour and salt. Make a soft dough using warm water. Finally add oil and keep covered for 10 minutes.
  2. In a bowl add sesame powder, jaggery and cardamom powder. Mix well.
  3. Divide the dough into 8 to 10 equal parts and roll a small roti. Apply a drop of oil and spread. Add 2 heaped tablespoons of sesame filling and cover by gathering the sides of the roti and roll again into a big roti.
  4. Cook both sides of the roti on a heated tawa on medium heat using oil/ghee.
  5. Serve hot.


  1. While kneading dough, add water at regular intervals preferably using a tablespoon.
  2. Any other millet flour can be used instead of jowar flour.
