Here again I had an opportunity to make a sweet for a party. This time it was my friend's baby shower. This is a very simple-to-make sweet and an easy-to-gobble kind of a sweet. Apparently Amma learnt it about 45 years back from a friend and she shared it with me and said it would be ideal for a baby shower. She said that she used to prepare khoya in advance the painstaking way! I made it the easier way and here is the proof !! 

Peanut Burfi

Ingredients -

Peanuts Roasted, Skinned and Powdered 2 cups
Cashews, Powdered 4 Tbsp (Optional, but enhances the taste)
Almonds, Powdered 4 Tbsp (Optional, but enhances the taste)
Khoya/Mawa 1 1/2 cups (Homemade / store bought
Sugar 2 cups
Cardamom powder 1 tsp
Ghee 1 tsp only for greasing
A few roasted Cashews for garnish.

Method Of Preparation - 

In a heated non stick pan, add khoya, sugar and mix well.

Once the mixture turns syrupy and sticky [about 8-10min], then it is time to add the peanut-almond-cashew powder. 

Keep stirring the mixture continuously so there are no lumps. Add in the cardamom powder too.

Keep a greased plate ready. [I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper.]

When the mixture comes together as a single mass, remove from fire.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared plate.

Peanut Burfi

Level it using a greased rolling pin or a flat plate. Make deep dents with a greased knife/pizza cutter to cut into desired shapes while it is still hot.

Please don't wait to cut them into pieces. It is going to need strong arms after they are cooled. [I learnt it the harder way..S had to pitch in :)]

Press a cashew on each of the squares (while they are still warm) to give it a festive look. [Either way they are going to disappear!! I could take the pictures as I made this when I was alone at home :)]

Preparation Time - 45 min
Makes 45-50 1 inch squares
