How to make peanut chikki?
Take a pan. Add peanuts.
Dry roast them on medium to high flame. When it turns slightly golden in color or you can also smell the aroma of roasted peanuts. Then turn off the heat.
And leave it to cool down. After cooling, remove the skin of peanuts by rubbing and crushing the nuts gently. Separate the skin from the peanuts.
Now take a heavy bottom pan or kadhai. Add water.
Then add jaggery.
Melt the jaggery on high flame. Now cook them on high flame and stir well. Here you can see the big bubbles in the syrup.
Cook them until the big bubbles turn into tiny bubbles. It may take 10 to 15 minutes. But make sure to keep your eyes on it. When it looks like this(tiny bubbles) turn the flame on low.
Take some water in a bowl. Add a small drop of jaggery and check them after 3 to 4 seconds. If it forms hardball and you can easily break them into pieces. It means the syrup is ready. If not, cook for 1 to 2 minutes more.
Now add peanuts. Mix well on low flame. Here, you have to grease the surface, rolling pin, and knife with some oil before pouring the mix on the surface. So do this step before preparing the syrup or meanwhile.
Now immediately pour the chikki on the greased surface. Spread them well and cut them into pieces.
Leave it to cool down. Then break them into small pieces.
Peanut chikki is ready.
