Chikki


 Chikki is a traditional Indian sweet, made from nuts and jaggery. Our little hero is not so ok with Jaggery, (molasses) and so I have tried it with honey and date syrup .Melt the honey over low flame and when it begins to get a little sticky, add the nuts and blend it in. Pour it into the moulds as this was a trial batch I had poured it into greased small square shaped steel plates. Garnish it with a little grated coconut. Leave it to harden overnight. With date syrup, again heat over low flame. When it becomes to boil, I added ground peanut powder and blended cashews to give the chikki variations. The honey version is a little sticky and tends to stick to your tooth. So lo! Two variants of our own desi energy bars from your desi girl. If you have a peanut allergy problem, you can also add raisin, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnut and apricots.The darker chiiki is using date syrup.The chiki needs to be refrigerated when stored,for subsequent use.
