How to make Peanut chikki at home/
Moongfali ki chikki ghar par kaise banaye/
Yes Yes i know after a long time or you can say after a year i am here. Last recipe i posted was last year on same date. I have no excuses. I had time but circumstances were not favourable and all my plans of baking and cooking went backdoor. No its not like that that i was not baking or cooking , i was doing both things but not in mood to click or post anything.
But after a hard struggle i decided to start posting recipes again. As winters are round the corner i am here with peanut brittle/peanut chikki/moongfali ki chikki which we use to enjoy and lot then and now. Its very very easy you just need to keep in mind few thing and you are done with this Crunchy delight.
Peanuts (roasted)- half cup
Jaggery (crushed) half cup
Ghee (clarified butter)- 1/2 tbsp
few tbsp water to test the jaggery consisitacy
take your Ingredients
prepare your base by greaing it with ghee
Grease your rolling pin too
Both things greased with ghee
Now add ghee in heavy bottom kadai/pan
when ghee is meltedd add jaggery
soon it will start melting
keep stirring and cook for 2-3 minutes
Take few drops of melted jaggery in water after few seconds take it in hands and roll
if it hardens then it is ready to add peanuts
mine was soft ball so i cooked it for more few minutes

this time it broke with tuck sound
add peanuts and mix it quickly
now take it out to greased surface
Roll it with greased rolling pin

leave it for 5-10 minutes
Break pieces and eat
- You need to be very attentively and quickly while making chikki
- Cook jaggery on low flame else it will burn very easily
- Keep on continuously stirring as even few seconds can burn and turn it bitter.
- Prepare base and rolling pin initially as after mixing peanuts and jaggery we need to roll it immediately.
- As soon as you take it off jaggeru amd peamits ,ix off the fire roll it immidietely as it will harden in few seconds and it would be very difficult to roll it.
- Use heavy bottom kadai/pan.
