Multinut Chikki

Multinut_Chikki_1 Chikki is a traditional Indian sweet prepared with any edible nut or puffed rice or with mixed nut and sugar/jaggery. The preparation is simple and low calorie compared to other sweets. Chikkis are all time children favorite. In my childhood, chikkis were the common sweets given to children. As today’s children munch chocolate, we munched these chikkis in our childhood.

They are good for health as the ingredients are nuts and jaggery. Here I prepared chikki with mixed nuts and sugar.

Serves: 6

Cooking time: 15 minutes approximately

Ingredients

  • Cashew nut – 1 table spoon
  • Pista – 1 table spoon
  • Raisins – 1 table spoon
  • Skinned and roasted peanut – ½ cup

  • Ghee – 2 tea spoon
  • Roasted white sesame – 1 tea spoon (for garnishing)

Method

  • Chop cashew nut, raisins and pista; partially powder peanut, you will get nearly 1 cup by mixing all these things.

    If jaggery is used instead of sugar, do we melt jaggery without adding water ?
