Kappalandi Mittayi/ Chikki/peanut ladoo is a is yummy crispy candy made with peanuts and jaggery. For sweetness you can also use caramelized sugar. This fresh home made peanut candy is kids favorite. Try this you will surely love it.

Peanuts - 1 1/2 cup
Jaggery- 1 1/2 cup
Water- 1/2 cup
Salt - a pinch
Ghee- 1 tbs
Cardamon powder- a pinch
Dry ginger powder- 1/8 tsp (optional)

Dry roast peanut in medium flame for 8-10 minutes. Allow this to cool down. Rub with you palm to remove the skin and keep aside.
Heat jaggery and water and allow it to melt. Strain and transfer the syrup into a heavy bottom pan. In medium heat allow it to thicken to two thread consistency. It will be sticky when you press it between your thumb and index finger and will form two or three threads. Reduce the flame and stir continuously for another 4-5 minutes till it thickens. To test the perfect syrup consistency drop a little syrup into water, when pressed together it will form a hard  ball that is elastic and can be shaped. Add the cardamon powder,dry ginger powder and ghee and mix. Add the peanuts and mix and switch off the flame. Immediately transfer into a greased plate and allow to slightly cool down before forming balls. You can also spread it into greased plate and cut into squares.
