Groundnut Chikki


Roasted groundnut - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup


Powder the groundnuts coarsely and keep it aside. Now take the sugar in a dry pan and heat it until it just melts completely(Do not add water). Now reduce the flame and add the groundnut powder and mix it well quickly. Now pour the mixture over a butter greased plate and flatten it using the chapathi roller stick and draw the lines using butter grease
d knife. The most important point to remember is that, flattening and drawing the lines should be done before the mix cools down. Now let it cool down for few min. Brake along the lines to make small squares(shape is left to your creativity). Chikki is ready.. :)

You might mistake this to the kadala barfi that is sold in shops. But there is a vast difference in the taste because they use jaggery and this one is done using sugar. What so ever, what we make is always tastier than anything else na!!! :)

This sweet just needs 2 ingredients and 2 min to be done. It would surely flatter the young ones at home. :) Happy eating :)

One more pic to treat your eyes!!!
