Badam Chikki | Diwali Greetings

Badam Chikki
Are you all done with your Diwali preparations/celebrations yet?I am running around like a headless chicken with many tasks finished,many more yet to,with Diwali celebrations bang on in our apartment plus a friends get together tonight,phew,this Diwali has been tiring!
Badam Chikki 
As is the ritual,finished making Gajar ka Halwa and Nankhatai,so was thinking of something new for this year and came across this super simple recipe at Manjula's kitchen.I have not tried making the traditional Peanut chikki yet since I am wary of messing up the sugar syrup consistency etc,but this recipe requires none of that and is quite easy even for a beginner.
