Peanut Chikki / Peanut brittles

Chikki is a traditional ready-to-eat Indian sweet generally made from groundnuts/peanuts and jaggery. Any nut can be used to make this chikki but the process is always almost the same. 
Here I'm going to use sugar instead of jaggery and coconut along with peanuts .
These crunchy sweet snacks are a huge hit at my home.
They are very easy to make and take very less time and are Addictive.

Ingredients :

  1. Peanuts - 500 gms
  2. Sugar - 3 cups
  3. Coconut - 1 cup (cut into small pieces)
  4. Water - 1 cup

Method :

  1. Roast the peanuts and coconut gently in a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat till they are aromatic.
  2. Let the peanuts cool down, then remove the skin and crush them coarsely.
  3. In the meantime, grease a flat plate with little ghee/oil and keep it aside.
  4. In a sauce pan mix sugar and water together and bring it to boil.
  5. Allow to melt and cook (stirring continuously) till it turns slightly thick.
  6. To test the syrup put a drop in cold water, if it forms a firm ball then the syrup is ready.  
  7. Add the roasted peanuts and coconut to it and mix well so they are fully coated.
  8. Pour the mixture on to greased plate and spread out evenly.
  9. Allow to cool then break into bite-sized pieces or cut into any desired shape. 
  10. Store in an airtight container, in a cool and dry place.



                  Enjoy and Good luck :)
