If you have a sweet-tooth like my husband, then chikki is probably the most easy-to-make and tasty-to-eat sweet ….yummy :) Here I have used only groundnuts. Cashews, almonds and a mixture of all the above can be used.


  • Groundnuts - one and half cup
  • Sugar - about one cup
  • Ghee - 2 teaspoons


  • Roast the groundnuts in a kadai on a medium flame.After it cools, rub off the skin and crush lightly with hand
  • Grease a plate with ghee and set aside
  • Melt the sugar in a thick bottomed kadai over a very low flame.
  • When it has melted and turned slightly golden, remove from the flame and add the nuts while stirring briskly.
  • Quickly pour into the greased plate and cut into small squares

Preparation time: 15 minutes
