Method
  • Roast the peanut in Microwave in high for 5 min.
  • Cool it down . Remove the skin and broken into pieces.
  • Heat jaggery and sugar with water in a heavy bottomed vessel.
  • When the jaggery melts drain it using the sieve to remove the impurities.
  • Keep it again in the stove .
  • Stir often.
  • Meanwhile in a small bowl take 1/2 cup of cool water.
  • Check the consistency of jaggery by dropping little bit in water.

I'm not exaggerating Kamala, they look perfect like store bought chikis. I have never tried making them at home. It's my favorite too. Now bookmarked. Thank you very much for the recipe.
