Til Patol – Parwal with Sesame Seed

Got bored of regular Patol recipe, so experimented a bit with some ’til bata’ or sesame seed paste while cooking patol and the outcome is amazing. 


  • Patol or Parwal – 10
  • Onion – 1, chopped
  • Sesame seed paste – 1 tbsp
  • Curd – 1 tbsp
  • Ginger Paste – 1 tsp
  • Green chilli paste – as per taste
  • Salt, sugar, Turmeric
  • Kalo jeera / Kalonji seeds – a pinch
  • Mustard Oil
  • Garam masala powder – a pinch
  • Coriander leaves for garnishing

Wash and scrub the patol thoroughly. Make a slit at both ends. Lightly fry the patol with a pinch of salt and turmeric and keep aside.

Add kalo jeera / kalonji seeds in oil. Then add the chopped onion and fry a little.

Make a mixture of sesame seed paste, curd, green chilli paste and ginger paste with half cup of water and then add it on top of fried onions.

Fry the masala till oil separates. Then add a cup of hot water and add the parwals. Let it get cooked.

When parwals are almost cooked, add a spoonful of sugar. adjust the salt, if required. When gravy thickens, sprinkle garam masala powder and remove from heat.

Enjoy with plain rice.
