Sambhar [Tangy Lentil Soup with Vegetables]

Yippeee...finally I made it .... I have been struggling to get a perfect recipe for Sambhar, while searching for recipe I stumbled upon this recipe on Shakahari Rasoi . I followed the recipe word to word and my sambhar came out quite good.

Peanut Chikki [Peanut Brittle]

March is National Peanut Month, so thought of making Peanut Chikki / Moongphali Chikki to mark this occasion. My mother used to make this for Makar Sankranti. It is a very good source of proteins and a good snack for school going kids.

Ingredients Peanuts, roasted - 1 cup
Jaggery [Indian Brown Sugar] - 1 cup
Ghee/ vegetable oil - 1 tsp
Dried ginger powder - 1 tsp

Method Heat ghee in a pan, add jaggery and add just enough water to melt it and cook till it boils. Test the consistency by dropping few drops in water, the drop should harden and not melt in watter. At this point add dry ginger powder and roasted peanuts. Mix and spread it on a greased plate. Cool and break them into bite size pieces and enjoy !
