The tale of Gajak goes long back when nuts and jaggery were cooked together to make energy bars for soldiers in the Mughal army. The taste of this pushed for it to get adopted by commoners and has become a delicacy, during the festive season of Sankranti and Lohri in the country. Watching the making of a gajak is truly a treat to the eyes.  

Nostalgia beats-Does it remind you of it getting stuck to your teeth and post that we would spend hours struggling to take it out?
