Wish you a Happy birthday PT !! Wish You have a great year ahead!!
1 cup peanuts ( i used skinless peanuts but with skin can also be used)
3/4 cup jaggery
1/4 cup water
- Heat a pan or kadai and dry roast peanuts till all turns lite brown. Remove from the heat. Let it cool for 2- 5 mins. Now transfer the roasted peanuts to a kitchen cloth. Close all the sides of towel and rub the peanuts. By this way if you are using peanuts with skin the skin gets removed and the peanuts get separated in to halves.
- Heat water in a non-stick pan. Add jaggery to it and use a wooden ladle to stir . Now stir the jaggery on low medium flame.
- Once jaggery is dissolved completely, bubbles will form. Stir them continuously at this stage.
- Now take a bowl of water and keep aside. When the syrup becomes thick, pour a drop of syrup into water.
- If you are able to form a ball with that drop then this is correct consistency otherwise stir the syrup and keep on checking the consistency.
- Once you reach the correct consistency, add peanuts to it and stir continuously. Switch off the flame and keep the pan aside. Let it cool for a minute and grease your palm nicely with ghee or just wet your palm and start making balls.
- If you want to make chikki or burfi , then grease a plate and pour the peanuts mixture to the greased plate and spread it equally all the sides.
- When it is still warm , cut into rectangular shapes using knife. Store it in an air-tight container.
Thanks you PT for this delicious recipe and Hope you liked your small treat from me :)
