Karupatti Kadalai Urundai / Indian Peanut Candy

Karupatti Kadalai Urundai is a crunchy sweet snack made with peanuts and palm jaggery (karupatti). Palm jaggery is a very sweet, sweetening agent prepared from the palm tree sap and is used in many preparations in India and other South Asian countries. It is in itself sweet and delicious and when mixed with peanuts it tastes awesome! moreover they are cheaper and nutrition-rich. Palm jaggery cleans the intestine by avoiding and getting rid of constipation, so helps ease digestion and thereby removes toxins from the body. Coming to the preparation, it is so easy requires just 2 ingredients apart from water and can be made in just minutes, but takes some time to harden. These can be stored in airtight containers and consumed later, but be sure that they harden well. No refrigeration needed. Now lets get to know the recipe.



INGREDIENTS

(Makes 10 small balls)

  1. Roasted Peanuts (Groundnuts) - 200 grams 
  2. Karupatti / Palm Jaggery - 200 grams 
  3. Water - 1/4th of a cup 

PREPARATION METHOD 

  • Slightly roast the peanuts for a minute on a pan without oil. 
  • After it cools down add them to a blender and just give a spin to get a coarse peanut mixture.
  • Heat a pan or wok, add palm jaggery and water and stir well on low flame. 
  • When the consistency becomes thick (take a small amount of this syrup and put it inside a cup of water, it should form a ball, this is the perfect consistency) remove from flame and add peanuts to it. Mix well.
  • Keep aside until the mixture becomes warm. Then wet your palms with little water and make small balls and set aside.
  • Becomes harder after it cools down. Store them in airtight containers or serve. 

TIP 1: The consistency of the syrup should not be too thick. You can also use jaggery (vellam) for making these balls. 

TIP 2: You can also make other shapes. Spread rice flour on a tray and dust of the excess flour, then pour the prepared mixture into the tray when it is hot and spread well. When they become warm use cookie cutters to make different shapes. Then allow them to cool well and get hardened. Store them.
