Method to make Peanut Gajjak - To make peanut gajjak, first, take 2 small bowls of raw peanuts and put them in a pan, and roast them on a slow flame for 4 to 5 minutes (you can also add almonds and cashews with peanuts).
Roast the peanuts on low heat so that the peanuts are not raw from anywhere and crunchy when they eat. After the peanuts are roasted, keep it for some time to cool down and after cooling it remove the peel and separate the peanuts in a plate.
Now take a pen and put a spoonful of ghee in it, add 250 to 300 grams of small pieces of jaggery to it and finally add 2 tablespoons of water so that the jaggery will not burn and will melt easily. After it melts, add ¼ tbsp of baking soda to it and mix, add peanuts after 2 to 3 minutes and mix well.
Now take a big plate or plate and put some ghee on it so that the jaggery does not stick on that vessel. Now put the batter on the utensil and spread it, you can give it any shape like a round, square, rectangle or can also make it like a ladoo.
