People also make burfi using coarse peanut.But I feel using whole peanut is more crispy.
Roasted Peanut-2 cups
Sugar/jaggery-1 1/2 cup
Water- 1 tsp(optional)
Light corn syrup-1 tbs(approximately)
Vanilla essence-few drops(optional)
1)Melt sugar/jaggery in a heavy bottomed pan.
2)Keep stirring .(Add very little water if patience is missing in the dictionary:P)
3)Once sugar melts add corn syrup and essence and keep stiring.
4)When it reaches two string consistency (hard ball or when u drop the syrup in water it should not spread and should be able to make a ball)add peanuts .
6)Pour immediately in a greased tray and cut it .
7)Allow it to cool and enjoy home made crispy burfi.
