Chikki can be made with a myriad of ingredients like puffed rice, peanuts, chana dal, dry fruits etc. The sticky agent also, the sweetner is generally in the form of jaggery and sugar. While some chikkis are difficult to make, some like the murmura chikki are very easy. Listing down some popular chikki recipes from our website :
To prepare kurmura chikki, firstly grease a large thali, rolling pin with ghee and keep aside.
To begin making the murmura chikki, heat a deep non-stick pan and add puffed rice.
Dry roast on a medium flame for 3 minutes or until they are golden pink. Do not brown them or else the kurmura chikki will taste aweful.
Remove and keep aside.
Heat ghee in the same deep non-stick pan.
Add jaggery. Most chikkis are made using jaggery but, you can use brown sugar as a substitute.
You will notice the jaggery begins to bubble up and slowly changes its colour to golden brown. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring continuously.
Switch off the flame, add the puffed rice.
Mix very well to coat puffed rice nicely with jaggery.
When the mixture is ready, put the entire mixture on the back side of the greased thali or a smooth greased stone surface. You have to be very quick while performing this step, as puffed rice coated with jaggery tend to harden and crisp, making it difficult to spread.
Roll it out thinly into a 200 mm. (8”) diameter circle using a greased rolling pin.
Cut them into 38 mm. (1. 5’’×1. 5’’) square pieces using a sharp knife and our mamra chikki is ready.
Allow murmura chikki to cool completely and break from the cuts.
Store puffed rice chikki an air-tight container. Crushed Peanut Chikki, Cashew Chikki, Coconut Chikki, Til Papdi Chikki are some other chikki recipes that you may like to try!
