Maharashtrian Lonavala Chikki

Ingredients

  • 1+1/2cups Mixed nuts (broken coarsely)
  • 1cup sugar
  • 1pinch Baking soda
  • 2tbsp Ghee

Steps

  1. Drop and spread a tablespoon of ghee in a heavy bottomed pan, sprinkle the sugar over it (this helps for caramelizing evenly). Meanwhile prepare a wooden board and rolling pin, grease them generously with the remaining ghee.
  2. Place the pan in slow flame, allow the sugar to melt and caramelize. Add the baking soda, once the sugar turns a deep brown colour, remove immediately from the fire.
  3. Drop the broken nuts, give a stir. Transfer immediately to the greased board, press the mixture with rolling pin.
  4. Allow to cool, while its still warm cut as squares. Once cooled completely, break the chikkis as squares.
  5. Store them in air tightened box.
My Tip: Take care while caramelising, dont let the caramel to turn dark brown, its will taste bitter. Be alert once the sugar starts caramelise, coz the caramelisation will be very quick. Once you add the nuts, stir briskly and drop the mixture immediately to the greased board, roll it immediately. This chikki mixture will be extremely sticky but once cooled, will be prefect in texture.
