Method
Dry roast peanuts on low to medium flame till slightly change its color. Stir constantly to prevent burning.


Remove in a plate and let it cool down completely. With the help of kitchen towel, remove skin from peanuts.


With the help of rolling pin, roughly crush peanuts in to halves.


In a pan, add jaggery along with clarified butter.


On low to medium flame allow jaggery to melt completely. Stir constantly to prevent jaggery from burning. Check the consistency of jaggery by dropping couple of jaggery drops into cold water. Remove jaggery drop from water and check, it should be crunchy to break. If drop is not crunchy but chewy, then cook further to get right consistency.


Now turn off the heat and stir in all peanut halves.


Mix well till each peanut half is well coated with jaggery.
