Peanut – 2 cup
Jaggery – 1cup
Water – ½ cup
Ghee for greasing

§   First, in a heavy bottomed pan, roast the peanut in medium flame   with constant stirring. It will crack open. Once cooled down, rub the peanuts and eliminate the skin by blowing it away.

               §  For syrup, heat water and jaggery until it dissolves. 
§  Filter it through a  strainer

§ Continue heating until the syrup is thick and frothy. Keep the flame low when the syrup nears the consistency .

§  Test the consistency by adding few drops to water and you should be able to form a shiny ball out of it, that holds the shape.

§  Add peanuts to it. Mix well.


       §   After a minute, grease your hands with ghee and carefully take little 
                      mixture with your fingers and shape it to  round balls.
