Ingredients

The following are the ingredients needed to prepare around 10 - 15 pieces of kadalai mittai,

  • Peanuts - 1 cup
  • Jaggery - 3/4 cup 
  • Water - a few tablespoons used while melting jaggery
  • Cardamom powder - 1-2 pinch
  • Ghee - as required for greasing.

Preparation Steps

  1. Dry roast the peanuts in a pan at a low flame. Do not over roast. Transfer the roasted peanuts to a bowl after peeling the skin off and keep it aside.
  2. Add jaggery to a pan and a little water and melt it completely. 
  3. Clean the melted jaggery using a filter and add it to a fresh pan.
  4. Cook the jaggery in a low to medium flame until it thickens. 
  5. You need to get a consistency where it is thick enough for a candy. Be very cautious and don't let it turn dark as it can spoil the taste. 
  6. To test the consistency, take some water in a small bowl and drop a few drops of jaggery in it. 
  7. If it turns into a glass like structure which is breakable then it is perfect. 
  8. At this stage add the roasted peanuts and cardamom powder. Give it a mix. You can switch off the flame in one or two minutes after adding peanuts.
  9. Once it has mixed well transfer the contents to a square shaped container that is greased with ghee. 
  10. Use a greased spoon too while filling and pressing it inside.
  11. Soon the contents get the shape of the container. You can flip it on a plate and remove the big bar of peanuts and jaggery. 
  12. Using a greased knife cut it into small pieces. This can be stored in an airtight container and enjoyed for over a month.
