crushed peanut chikki recipe crushed peanut chikki recipe | crush chikki | crushed shengdana chikki with step by step photo and video recipe. chikki recipes are one of the popular dessert snacks recipes across india and are one of the simple snacks to prepare. generally, it is made with whole peanuts, but can also be made with other nuts like cashew nuts, almonds and a lot of others. in addition, it can also be made by crushing the nuts and crushed peanut chikki is one such popular way of preparing a sweet dessert snack recipe.

well, my previous groundnut chikki was the traditional chikki recipe followed across india, but this recipe of crushed peanuts hail from lonavala. basically, it is very popular across lonavala and khandala regions. moreover, you would find hundreds of maganlal chikki centres in lonavala selling crushed nuts chikki. out of these, my personal favourite is the peanut and cashew nuts. you do get the combination of peanuts and cashew nuts but i personally do not like that combo. i personally feel the chikki would lose its authenticity and flavour with a combination of nuts. but if you prefer to extend this recipe with a combination of nuts you are more than welcome to do so with the same steps and procedure.

furthermore, i would also like to add some additional tips, suggestions and variants to the crushed peanut chikki recipe. firstly, the peanut is the critical thing for this recipe and it has to be fresh and crunchy. with the peanuts, some may have a bad taste which may spoil the entire chikki taste. hence be careful while choosing it. secondly, you need to be very careful while dealing with jaggery syrup and the step of mixing peanuts with jaggery syrup. there is no room for resting after it is mixed and you need to quickly shape it before it gets hard. lastly if you do not have access to jaggery you may also use sugar for the same purpose.

notes:

  • firstly, make sure to roast the peanuts really well else the chikki will not be crunchy.
  • also, the texture is completely depending on the jaggery syrup consistency and colour. so do not compromise in the hardball consistency.
  • additionally, you can crush the peanuts in mortar pestle if you are looking for slightly crushed peanuts.
  • finally, crushed peanut chikki will be slightly soft compared with roasted peanut chikki.
