Ground Nut Balls



Ingredients :


Groundnut – 4 cups(roasted)


Jaggery – 3 cup

Cardamom – 6 nos (powdered)


Method :

Dry roast the groundnut in a heavy bottomed pan, till it gives out a nice aroma.

Rub the groundnuts well with your palm to remove the skin.

Remove the skin completely.

In a heavy bottomed pan, grate the jaggery, add 1/2 cup of water and boil on a medium flame.

Boil till the syrup reaches double thread consistency.

To check thickness , pour a spoonful of syrup into a cup of cold water.

If it forms a ball the syrup is ready.

Remove the syrup from the stove. Mix the groundnut with the syrup.

Allow it to cool for around 10 minutes.

Shape into balls using a little rice flour , so that the syrup does not stick to your hands.
