Tilgul is a colourful sesame candy coated with sesame seeds; in Maharashtra people exchange tilgul on Sankranti, a Hindu festival celebrated on 14 January. The sweet is a mixture of seasame seed (called "Til" in Marathi/Hindi) and jaggery (called "Gul" in Marathi/Hindi) and hence the name. On the Sankranti eve, families serve their guests with Tilgul while saying "Tilgul ghya, goad goad bola" which literally means "Take Tilgul and talk all sweet".
This can also refer to "Til Ka Phool" or "Flowers of Til/Sesame"
