Kadalai Urundai | Peanut Ladoo | Chikki

I love kadalai urundais (Groundnut balls). I have seen people using sugar syrup to make these ladoos. But I love to add jaggery (Vellam / Gud). I couldn’t find paagu vellam (dark colored jaggery) hence this pale color. Nevertheless the taste was gud!!

Peanuts: 1 cup
Jaggery: 3/4 cup
Elachi (Cardamom) powder: a pinch
Rice flour: little (to make the ladoos)

Preparation Method:

  • Roast the peanut and remove its rind.
  • Add 1 tsp of water and heat the jaggery in low flame.
  • Be sure to add very little water (just 1 tsp would be enough).
  • Keep heating the syrup till we get 2 string consistency.
  • Remove from the stove and immediately add roasted peanuts and elachi powder.
  • Mix it thoroughly.
  • Apply rice flour on your palms and start making ladoos 🙂
