Ingredients to make Dry fruit laayi (Chikki)

  • sugar 1 cup full
  • Chopped dry fruits (walnuts, almonds, cashews, pista) 3 / 4 cup
  • Grated dry coconut 1 / 4 cup

How to make Dry fruit laayi (Chikki)

  1. Mix together dry fruits poppy seeds grated coconut and cardamom. Keep aside
  2. Grease two places on the kitchen platform with oil and also grease the wooden rolling pin.
  3. Heat a heavy bottomed pan. Put the ghee. Then add sugar and saut continously over low flame.
  4. Sugar will start melting and slowly will change colour. Continue sauting n heating. When sugar completely melts and slightly changes colour, put a drop of this in bowl of water. If it hardens immediately and crackles on eating, the sugar is ready.
  5. If not then continue sauting n heating. Check again and again till sugar is done.
  6. Once sugar is ready add dry fruits mixture and turn off flame. Mix thoroughly.
  7. Divide in two parts. Pour one part on the greased platform and roll while hot in thick round shapes. Do not let it stick to platform or rolling pin. Take off.Allow to cool.
  8. Repeat the same with the second half of the mixture.

My Tip:

Be careful with heating of sugar. Less heating will make Laayi sticky. Overheating of sugar may result in bitter taste as sugar will start caramelising.
