Palli Chikki - Palli Patti/ Peanut Brittle

This is the treat most of us enjoyed from our chailhood......and many many memories surely attached to these....So, these chikkies are surely heart rob of mine... not only for taste but also for memories...........



Ingredients:

  • 2&1/2 cup Peanuts/palli/verusenaga pappu
  • 3/4cup Jaggery
  • 1/2cup Sugar
  • 1/4cup Water
  • 1/4tsp.Cardamom(powdered)
  • 1/4tsp.ghee

METHOD:

  • Roast pea nuts, keep aside.
  • In a thick bottomed, wide pan, heat jaggery, sugar with 1/4 cup of water, bring them to boil, now you see lots of bubbles, keep stirring until it gets to a thick syrupy consistency.( to check the consistency, drop few drops of syrup in a bowl of water, it should solidify into soft threads). Now add cardamom powder, pea nuts and stir constantly for few minutes, then turn off the heat and pour this mixture onto a ghee greased pan, leave it to cool. When cooled, break them to pieces (need not be fancy, I like to brake them in random shapes, which is quite easy). Store them in an airtight container.
