peanut chikki recipechikki recipe | peanut chikki recipe | groundnut chikki or shengdana chikki with step by step photo and video recipe. the recipe of chikki is very straightforward and it begins with preparing a hot jaggery syrup with the brown jaggery. typically jaggery would melt by itself when heated but it can be triggered with by adding some water. later it is mixed with roasted peanuts and transferred to mould which shaped to 6–8mm thickness bars.

this is my first chikki recipe and it took me a while to post it with the video. to be honest i was planning to share this recipe long back, but i couldn’t because of the jaggery. basically i was not able to get the sticky or brown jaggery which is used in this recipe. until last month i found this in one of the sydney’s indian grocery shop. i had visited sydney for my friends daughter naming ceremony and i wanted to utilise it to visit the biggest indian grocery shopping centre in australia. i guess you may be doubting what so special about this jaggery? basically the brown jaggery’s are sticky which helps to bind the peanuts and gives a good glossy shining look to peanuts chikki.

chikki recipewhile it is one of the simplest chikki recipe, yet i would like to highlight some important tips for a perfect peanut chikki recipe. firstly, i have roasted the peanuts in the kadai before adding them to jaggery syrup. alternatively, you can use store bought roasted peanuts or even the peanuts roasted in microwave. secondly, you can enhance the favour of the chikki by adding 1 tbsp of ghee and pinch of cardamom while jaggery is melting. lastly, i have used brown jaggery which gives a dark glossy colour to chikki but even normal light coloured jaggery can also be used.
