Today I am going to bring in my childhood favorite sweet peanut toffee or chikki.

Usually we make these chikkies at home but those tastes are not like store bought one. But here I will show you exact taste of store bought chikki.

Ingredients:

1 cup Peanuts

1 cup Jaggery

¾ cup Sugar

4 Cardamom pods (crushed or powder)

½ tsp Ghee/Oil



Preparation for peanut:


Dry roast the raw peanuts in a pan on low flame till lightly brown or until crunchy.

Let it cool down some time, after that remove the skin from peanuts.



For Candy Syrup:


Take two kadais

In one kadai add little bit of water and add jagery, stir this very often.

At the same time we have to prepare sugar syrup to make this take another kadai fry the sugar without any water, stir thoroughly until it turns into candy syrup. When sugar syrup comes one string consistency remove the kadai from the stove.

wow, that one reminds my school days souvenirs from long long ago....hehehhe;

we used to buy from roadside vendors, we call it " Mallaatta cake"

I always thought it was only jaggery ( because of the colour) in fact it is a combination of caramelized sugar & jaggery surup, very interesting; will wait for the video recipe !! those ring murukkus look nice too :) nice post!!
