Khalī (खली) is another name (synonym) for Tilakiṭṭa, a Sanskrit name referring to a drug made of the left-overs after expelling oil from the seeds of Sesamum indicum (sesame). This synonym was identified by Narahari in his 13th-century Rājanighaṇṭu (verses 16.111-116), which is an Ayurvedic medicinal thesaurus. It can also be spelled as Khala.
