Here is another easy recipe for MakarSankranti- Peanut chikki. Its method of preparation is quite similar to Murmure ki chikki.

How to make Peanut Chikki
Preparation time: 2minutes
Cooking time: 5-7 minutes for roasting peanuts + 7-8 minutes for Gur
1 cup Peanuts
200 grams gur
1 tsp ghee
1 tsp saunf/fennel seeds
To make Peanut Chikki
First of all prepare your surface for spreading Chikki. Clean your kitchen counter and grease some area with ghee.
Dry roast peanuts in a heavy bottomed pan for 5-7 minutes.
Rub the peanuts with your hands so that their cover separates. Crush them lightly with belan.
Now in the same pan cook Gur.
This is the color of gur we start with.
This is how dark Gur should turn.
It will turn dark brown after 5-7 minutes and its aroma will also change. Add ghee in the melted gur.
Add saunf and roasted peanuts in the cooked Gur.
Mix everything quickly.
Spread the peanut chikki mixture quickly on the greased surface.
It sets real fast. You can break the pieces later on with hand easily.
