Chikki (Jaggery and Peanuts Sweet)

Rich roasted peanuts trapped in a shell of complex (salty-sweet, caramel, smoky) notes- peanut brittle or peanut chikki is my all time favorite candy. I first tried making chikki when I was in South Korea. I only remember that the chikki was a messy one, and now after a 5 to 6 months i tried making this again in a small quantity and this is the result. I am very happy and i am eagerly waiting for to show it to my husband, because i know he would be very happy to see even his favorite candy.


Ingredients
1 cup peanuts
200 gram jaggery
3 tea spns ghee



Method:
Roast the peanuts on a medium flame. Remove the skin. Heat ghee, add jaggery ,heat on a medium/low flame, mixing it continuously. When all jaggery melts down, immediately add the peanut. Remove from heat and mix well. Grease a plate with ghee, pour this mixture on top, roll into a small round balls.
Store in air tight container for 3 to 4weeks.
