Some special foods make winters all the more better. Chikki is a sweet snack that we have been noshing during the cold season ever since we can remember. The Indian snack cum dessert is traditionally made with jaggery (gur) which works wonders to keep us warm. Giving a pleasant change to our palate, we tried this chikki made with peanut and we must admit, it can give a strong competition to gur ki chikki. It tastes just as good and helps build immunity too, owing to the splendid warming properties of peanuts.

This special peanut chikki also provides us with the essential nutrient of protein that loads up on energy and also keeps us feeling full for a long time.
