Mixed Nuts and Seeds Brittle/Chikki

Today is our last day of blogging marathon, hope i didnt bored you all with my non stop peanut recipes,this brittle is my last post for this week of blogging marathon as i choosed peanuts as main ingredient..Check out the other marathoners running this 16th edition of blogging marathon with me here.When we were kids, my mom used to make quite often chikkis with peanuts for our snacks.She used to make big batch and we used to munch them for many days. Obviously those yummy peanut treats are my most favourite when i was kid.Few days back,my mom send me a parcel from India with a huge packet of raw peanuts and cashews, my sweet tooth started craving for those aromatic and crunchy munchy treats.

Without any hesitation,i prepared a mixed nuts and seeds brittle with roasted nuts like peanuts, almonds,pistachios,cashews and with mixed seeds like flax seeds,sesame seeds and few sunflower seeds.Needless to say these chikkis are quite addictive and we couldnt stop munching these addictive beauties.These chikkis get vanished very much quickly once they get cooled.Sending to Show Me Your Hits - Iron Rich Foods hosted by Julie,event by Sangee &to Amina's Guest Quest. .



1/2cup Raw peanuts
1/4cup Almonds
1/4cup Cashews
1/4cup Pistachios
1/3cup Sesame seeds
2tbsp Flax seeds
2tbsp Sunflower seeds
1+1/2cups Jaggery
Pinch Salt
1tsp Cardamom powder

Roast the peanuts in a pan and remove the skins and keep aside.In the same pan, dry roast the almonds,cashews,pistachios one by one until a nice aroma comes out.

Heat 1/4cup of water in a heavy bottomed vessel, add the jaggery...heat it in medium flame until the jaggery get well dissolved.Strain the jaggery water with a strainer, this helps to get rid of the mud and other impurities presents in the jaggery.

Heat now in high flame, they will start bubbling vigorously.Stir them continously, once they turn thick, just put a drop of the jaggery in cold water and roll them, if you are able to roll them.

Add the roasted peanuts,almonds,cashews,pistachios,sesame seeds,flax seeds,sunflower seeds and cardamom powder and salt to the jaggery syrup.Stir well until its turns thick.

Grease a plate,pour this mixture and let them cool completely. Cut this brittle as you desire and conserve them in an air tightened box and enjoy.
