Peanuts Chikki

Ingredients:
2 cups Peanuts / Groundnuts/ Shenga
1.5 - 2 cups Chikki Jaggary / Antu Bella
1 tsp Ghee / Thuppa
1/4 - 1/2 tsp Cardamom powder / Elakki hudi

Recipe:
Dry roast the peanuts in a pan or microwave and keep them aside for about 20-30 mins. Remove the outer cover of peanuts.

Put them in a mixer and crush them little bit as shown in the picture below.

Place one aluminum foil in a tray and keep it aside.
Put jaggary in a thick bottomed vessel and bring it to boil in low flame. Keep stirring the syrup in low flame until it is thick and sticky. (Carefully dip the tip of your index finger into the syrup, touch your index finger and thumb together and slowly tease apart. If one thread is formed between your finger and thumb the syrup is done.) Add baking soda and mix well.

Add crushed peanuts, cardamom powder, ghee and mix well.

Transfer this to the tray having aluminum foil and spread evenly as shown in the picture below. Cut them into square pieces as shown in the picture below.

Once it is cooled to room temperature, separate the pieces and store them in an airtight container.
