Ellu Bella Burfi

Happy Sankranti to all readers, subscribers and blogger friends. Here is a ellu bella (sesame jaggery peanut) burfi/chikki for Sankranti. We love chikki very much. I decided to make chikki adding all ingredients of ellu bella mixture.

You need the following :

Peanut : 1 cup (roasted, de-skinned and halved)
Roasted chickpeas/huridakadale - 1 cup
Dry Coconut : 1 cup (cut into small pieces or grated)
White Sesame : 1 cup (toasted)

Jaggery : 1 .5 cups (pounded to make small pieces)
Ghee : 1/2 tsp

In a heavy bottomed pan take jaggery and 2 tbsp of water. Keep stirring.
Meanwhile coarsely powder the sesame peanut coconut and gram mixture. Grase a flat plat with little ghee and also grease rolling pin with ghee. Keep it ready.
Add a tsp of ghee and stirr again. When you take a drop of this mixture btw fingures it should quickly form a ball. Also this mixture does not stick to your fingers once the ball is made.
At this stage add the powdered mixture and mix well. Transfer this mixture to the greased plate quickly. With the help of the rolling pin roll roll it to desired thickness. Leave the plate aside for few minutes before you cut them into a desired shapes.
Eat and enjoyy ............
