Singdana Chikki Recipe Card


The Maharashtrian hospitality is legendary. The cuisine has subtle variety and strong flavours and varies from region to region. In ancient times in the more affluent homes, feasts often started at mid-day and ended when the sun set! The presentation of food was alluring with a practice to sing sacred verses to dedicate the meal to God.
Maharashtrian cuisine covers a wide range from being extremely mild to very spicy dishes. Wheat, rice, jowar, vegetables, lentils and fruit form important components of Maharashtrian diet. 
Everybody knows about the unbeatable taste of the Mumbai’s chaats! But there is so much more to explore and savour in the other regions of Maharashtra.

Ingredients for Singdana Chikki Recipe

  • Peanuts 1 1/4 cup

  • Jaggery

  • Jaggery (gur) grated 1/2 cup

  • Ghee 1 teaspoon + for greasing


Step 1

Dry roast peanuts till crisp. Remove skin and crush lightly. Grease the kitchen worktop or a thali. Heat ghee in a thick-bottomed pan, add jaggery and cook on low heat till thick syrup is formed. To test whether the syrup is ready, put a drop of it in cold water.

Step 2

If it forms a firm ball the syrup is ready. Add the peanuts, mix and transfer immediately onto the greased kitchen worktop. Let it cool for thirty seconds. Roll out as thinly as possible using a greased rolling pin. Let it cool slightly before cutting into desired shapes. Store when completely cooled.
