Roasting Peanuts 

  • Heat up the thick-bottomed heavy Kadai or pan. Add some of the peanuts to it.
  • Flame variation from low to medium-low heat, completely roast the peanuts by stirring often till they become completely crunchy.
  • Roast till you see some black spots over the top of peanuts and they should consist of crunch in them. Taste a few peanuts and if it feels raw, then continue to roast it up.
  • Once the peanuts have gotten roasted well, then remove them on a separate plate. Let them cool down properly.
  • Grease the back of a metal tray or opposite side of a steel plate or marble board with some oil or ghee greased.
  • When the peanuts get cool down, then rub them between your palms. The husks over the peanut peels of easily.
  • Now to get rid of the husks, you can use a winnow. Add the peanuts to the sieve and sift down. The husks will get sifted easily. Remove the husked peanuts and keep them aside.

Making Jaggery Syrup

  • In the same Kadai which we used above or pan, take the jaggery powder. Jaggery block can also be used to chop and grind. If there are impurities, then you will need to strain the jaggery syrup.
  • Add some water to the jaggery powder.
  • Heat the Kadai or pan on a low-medium flame. With a spoon, begin to stir, so that all the jaggery gets dissolved completely without any lumps.
  • Keep on stirring the mixture often and swiftly.
  • Cook the jaggery syrup on low-medium heat with frequent stirrings. 
  • While the jaggery syrup is getting ready, also keep a bowl of cold water where you can check the consistency of the syrup side-by-side.
  • Keep on cooking till the mixture reaches the hardball formation stage. 
  • Add a few drops of the syrup into the cold water. It should be firm and snap easily. 

Making Peanut Chikki

  • When the jaggery syrup reaches the hardball consistency, quickly add the peanuts into it and give a quick stir and mix it all very well.
  • Switch down the heat and quickly pour the chikki mixture on the top of a greased plate or what we say a marble board.
  • Then quickly place butter paper or parchment paper over the chikki mixture.
  • With a rolling pin roll to even out the chikki layers smoothly and firmly. Roll to a neat even layer.
  • Next, remove the paper, and then with a knife, cut horizontally and vertically to make squares. Let the peanut chikki cool at room temperature.
