Hi Manjula ji,
Love your recipes. Can you please guide on how to make chili with raw turbalindo sugar. Thank you
Hi Manjula ji
All your dishes are awesome.. I have tried many of them and they turn out to be delicious.
As you are also Jain(vegetarian), I easily trust the ingredients and recipes and don’t need to worry if they are suitable for vegetarians.
Thank you for sharing your recipes.
Perfect step by step recipe. Manjula Aunty I made chikki for the first time and it has come out perfect. Tons and tons of thank you. I was always scared of doing something incorrect when cooking the sugar.
Kaanu, I am so glad to hear this, thank you

Brunda, I just work with measuring cups and spoons

Hi Manjula Ji,
The butter you have used, is it salted or unsalted butter?
Thanks in advance
These are mouth-watering Chikkis. 😉
I tried this morning, watching through your web-site. Its really wonderful recipe.
I even learnt many other new recipes through your recipes.
Hi manjula aunty,
could you please tell the recipe with jaggery.
I ama great fan of ur cooking and I have tried so many of ur recipes which was well appreciatef in the family.
Priyanka Jain, replace the sugar with jaggery and melt on the low heat, after melting just cook for one more minute every thing remain the same.
Thanx for the recipe. I made it with peanuts and raw turbinado sugar ( a kind of brown sugar). I am in SF Bay area. It didn’t come out like yours. Sugar had crystalized, butter had separated. Any tips on how to make with peanuts and brown sugar?
Sounds delicious, and a nice idea for a gift.
I prepared this but it does not taste good its very bitter,I think I over heated or burnt it..Is there any way to make it taste good??
Sorry you cooked the sugar too long
I use to prepare chikki using peanuts.I like Lonavala chikki mostly.I have to try this.Thanks for sharing this.
Im from the US but my husband is Indian and I cook indian a lot as well.
Contact me if you’d like me to share some of my own recipes as well – I don’t blog though!
I made your almond chikki this morning and it is so delicious. I love your website and have been cooking from it almost daily for two years. My husband and I are not Indian (I am eastern European descent and he is Soviet [Ukraine] and Israeli) but we love Indian food. I am having my first baby in six months and we joke about how the baby will be American Jew but raised on your Indian food.
I wish you all the best and will continue cooking your recipes for more years to come.
Pls teach us how to make atte ke ladoo.
I made this recipe vegan by using Earthbound Butter(vegan) and I also added little ground cardamom powder. it turned out so yummy. Thanks
very nice chikki ,by through your sight i really learn many dishes ,and daily i visit your sight for learn some new recipes
How you sliced almonds so thin? This one is tedious task . I tried doing same but result is not good
I buy sliced almonds.
Thank you Mam :))
I tried making a vegan version of this, using canola oil in place of butter but it did not quite work out. The sugar just did not melt in the oil and the mixture did not blend. if there is a vegan way of making this, please share.
And I used vegan butter and it still came out delicious!
I made this last night and my family fell in love with it. I will be making it again tonight and again for my cooking Class on Wednesday. I teach vegan and raw food classes. And since this is something I definitely associate with the holidays, I will show my class how to make this.
I talk about you All-The-Time Manjula. you can ask my students. they will attest to it. Thank you for such wonderful dishes.
The Cooking Lady,
Nice snake thank you so much.
Can you please show chikki made with jaggery, that we all make during makar sankranti? e.g peanut, till ?
Manjulaji, very nice recipe. My mom would make it too, the only difference is that she would add poppy seeds (khus khus) instead of sesame seeds, and few drops of lemon juice to the syrup so that it does not crystalize.
This dish is NOT vegan. Please move the vegan label or suggest an alternative to butter like coconut oil.
Sorry it was a mistake, I corrected it thank you.
