Fried Groundnuts: 1cup (remove the skin)
Sugar : 1/2cup
Note: Exact quantities.Sugar should always be less than groundnuts or any other dry nuts.
1.Fry the groundnuts till it gets hot.(Jus to gain back the crunchiness.)
2.You can either do the chikki using broken groundnuts or coarsed ground nuts.(I m doing coarsed version)
3.In a pan add sugar and heat it. There will be three stages here,viz.,
a)sugar joins together and becomes into lumps
b)then becomes like gum.
c)Completely dissolves and becomes yellow in color.
4. Once you see yellow color with sugar completely dissolved.switch of the stove and Add coarsely ground groundnuts and mix it together.
5.Once all comes together,Spread it on a cooking foil sheet and allow it to cool.
6.Then break into pieces and store it in a air-tight container.
Note:Jus packing these chikki's in a attractive gift pouch can be an instant gift to small kids.
