Congrats for the awards :)

Delicious, i was actually searching for chikki recipe on your blog at the time of Uttarayan, as i wanted that typical singdana chikki we have at home, and was actually surprised that i couldn't find it, i found for chikki-laddu though :)

So here you go, thanks for sharing this.

Hi Kajal,

I came across your blog today & loved it a lot. I read your entire blog & enjoyed the detailed explaination and photos you have added to explain the recipes. Thank you so very much! (I think you should also write a book with such pictures on authentic Gujarati cooking. :)

I liked your sketches and embroidery too. You are so talented & so creative!

I also wanted your help -- I had eaten tomato-sev-sabji in Rajkot two years ago & have been trying to make it, but I think I am not doing it correctly. So, if you have a recipe on that sabji, could you please show the recipe?

Thank you very much!

Best wishes,
Gauri.

Congrats on your award.

A coupla points need to be emphasized ....

1. Low heat while caramelizing the sugar / jaggery to prevent burning.

BUT, turn the heat on HIGH after adding the nuts, so the mixture temperature does not fall and so the sugar stays caramelized and does NOT solidify - which would cause a fiasco.

By the way, your jaggery looks quite white in color, .... I wonder if it is of some special variety ... or has the brown color got distorted in the picture ? .....

Good luck, and thank you.
