Make it and enjoy. Happy Cooking!

  1. I have used jaggery which is frozen and adding ghee while melting it enhances the taste and helps in melting it nicely.
  2. I have used peanuts which are roasted and without their skins. You can one with skins as well if you like.
  3. It is important to check on the Jaggery if it’s well cooked or not otherwise Chikis won’t turn out the same.
  4. Grease a plate with ghee so that the chikis don’t stick while cooling down.
  5. Cut it into shapes of your choice while they are a little warm otherwise once they have cooled down entirely they won’t cut out nicely.
  6. Sprinkling Coconuts shreds gives it a nice taste and texture.
