Dry roast peanuts on low flame. Now the peanut skin will start to loosen. Roast till light brown marks appear on peanuts. Transfer roasted peanuts on a paper. Crush them with a rolling pin. Rub with hands and remove skin from peanuts. Transfer to a big plate and remove skin from the peanuts as shown in the video. Add clarified butter in a pan. Melt it on low flame and stir continuously. It will take 5-7 minutes. For checking the right consistency of syrup, take water in a bowl, add few drops of syrup if it becomes hard and can't be broken with hands, then your syrup is ready. Syrup is ready now. Add roasted peanuts and mix well. Switch off the flame. Spread on a parchment paper / butter paper or a greased plate. Spread it with a spatula as it may be too hot. Roll it with a greased rolling pin. Cut with a sharp knife in square pieces. Allow to cool for an hour. Remove from the parchment paper.

I am an explorer of food and I feel that people who love to eat are always the best people. I am passionate about cooking and firmly believe in the fact that a recipe has no soul, but you, as a cook, with your affection can bring soul to the recipe. I like to show creativity with dishes which can be made with easily available ingredients in the kitchen.
