Heat a pan on low heat, add sesame seeds and roast until golden in colour. Remove from heat and keep aside.

Nest place the sugar and water in a thick bottomed pan over medium heat. Heat for about 10 minutes to melt the sugar.

Now take the roasted sesame seeds from the pan and add them into the syrup along with the vanilla. Mix it thoroughly until sesame seeds are fully coated.

Immediately pour this mixture on top of a greased surface. Roll into an even big round, using a greased rolling pin. (Press it to 1/4 inch thickness.)

Cool the mixture and cut into rectangle or square pieces. Serve and enjoy.
