- Chikki is the yummiest,healthiest,easiest and tastiest snack.
- What is the main in part in Chikki is to make paste of gur/jaggery perfect.
- First select the product of which you want to make chikki.
- After selecting product be ready with proportion of gur which is finely chopped and product.
- Be ready with 1/2 bowl water, 1 plate for spreading hot mixture , flat spatula and Chapati roller.
- Heat the pan, add gur, stir on a very medium flame for 5 to 7 minutes.
- After five To 7 minutes it will bubble like this.
- While we stir when gur become puffy and turn in to dark colour it seems that it is ready.
- Lets check, is it ready?
- Take 1/2 bowl water and pour 1 drop of hot gur paste in it.
- After 30 second check that drop by tasting, if it is sticky than stir gur for 2 to 3 minutes more but if it is crunchy than it is ready for mixing any product.
- Now Mix product of which you want to make chikki.
- Now pour this mixture and spread with flat spatula in the plate.
- Spread fast because within few second it becomes sticky than it is not possible to spread.
- One thing for chikki is that do not make more quantity at a time.
- Proportion for chikki is that as the size of product increase quantity of that product increase as to the proportion of gur.
- For Til take 1 cup proportion to 1/2 cup gur.
- For Daliya,peanuts take 1/1/4 cup proportion to 1/2 cup gur.
- For coconut take 1 1/2 cup proportion to 1/2 cup gur.
- For Mamra take 2 cup proportion to 1/2 cup gur.
- While spreading for til mixture if we want thin chikki than spread with chapati roller on a flat surface like platform or flooring.
- Any other Mixture can be spread in Plate with the help of flat spatula.
- Do not make large quantity at a time.
- It is time consuming but yummiest food at festival like Makar Sankrat.
- We can also make ladoo of Mamra and Til.
- As Maharashtrian peoople says "Til Gud Kha Ani Gud Gud Bola" it means Eat this til ladoo and speak sweet.
- When Makar sankrat comes 2 things cums in to mind one is KITE and Second is CHIKKI.
- So I made combination of both.
