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.
Recipe source - Manjula's Kitchen
Butter - 2 tsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Salt - a pinch
Badam,chopped - 1/2 cup
Sesame seeds - 1 tsp,toasted
In a thick bottomed pan add butter and mix in the sugar and salt.
Keep stirring till the sugar starts caramelizing and changes colour into a deep golden brown.(takes anywhere between 4-6 minutes).
Mix in the chopped almonds and sesame seeds.
Switch off flame and immediately pour into a greased plate/tray and flatten.
Let it set for 3-5 minutes and then break into bite-able pieces and serve.
Wishing a safe and Happy Diwali to every one who celebrate:)
