How to make Kaju Chikki
For preparing the cashew nut chikki, let us cut down the cashews. For this, take one cashew nut and divide it into two halves in long using a knife. Likewise cut each cashew nut and place them in a bowl.
Heat a pan on a flame. Add 1 tsp ghee to it and let it melt. Then add sugar to it and mix well. Stir constantly and cook the sugar on medium flame until it melts completely.
When the sugar melts completely, add chopped cashews to it and mix them really well. Stir to mix the cashews nicely with the melted sugar.
Now once the cashews are mixed well to the sugar, reduce the flame to low. Grease a board with some ghee. Pour the cashew mixture over it and roll it out evenly using a rolling pin. Roll it out little thinly (grease the rolling pin with some ghee so that it gets convenient to roll out the chikki).
After rolling out the chikki, make cut marks over it and keep aside to cool. Once the chikki cools down, separate it out using a knife from the board and place them on a serving plate.
Lip smacking and delicious cashew chikki is ready. Once the chikki cools down a little, store it in any air tight container and relish eating for up to 4 to 5 months.
- You can use jaggery as well for making the chikki instead of sugar.
- Don’t over cook the sugar as it will turn black and will taste bitter in taste.
