Sing Dana Chikki - Peanut Brittle ! Kem Cho ?


UK is covered in a white blanket....and Britain is frozen....Glitter Graphics | http://www.graphicsgrotto.com/ Brits are struggling in every corner...whole country comes to a standstill...people started panic buying...same time snow is causing distribution problems...Officially Britain can't cope with anything like this....mostly everyone is moaning except school children....So many schools are closed and kids are having fun Glitter Graphics | http://www.graphicsgrotto.com/including my kids too....when kids are at home... means mums are prisoners in the kitchen...however I love to be prisoner in the kitchen (my kids are Jailers ).....http://zaazu.comOK friends I think I'll stop here and let's see what I made while I was in Jail (kitchen)....made Peanut Brittle... A universally popular snack form the western part (Gujarat) of India, but made in a similar manner all over the country.... which is healthy for growing kids, and keeps you warm in winter months... for peanut benefits see here and Jaggery here ....


You will need :-
  • 1 cup raw peanuts
  • 11/2 cup Jaggery
  • 1 tbsp Ghee
Method :-
Roast peanuts in a non stick pan...Let it cool slightly..dehusk them.

 


Grind them in a grinder.


Heat ghee in heavy bottom pan, add Jaggery and make into a thick Syrup on a low heat.


Now add ground peanuts into syrup and mix well...switch of the heat..


After mixing well immediately spread to 1 centimeter (1/2 inch) thickness on a greased tray or thali.

Cut into squares when cool....Enjoy as much as my kids did....!

  27. Dear Jagruti
    How are you? I liked your appreciation on my Kerala blog. I am reading this while eating a post lunch, large piece of peanut chikki..( my wife is not around)
    I liked the jail business, how true and how enjoyable this jail isnt it? that too when the jailers are the kids.ha ha
    Have a nice week ahead ( God willing and weather permitting)
