Almond -Sesame Brittle | Badam Chikki (Quick snack in less than 15 minutes)

Sometimes I feel bored of the elaborate cooking the whole day,Do you feel the same?? And then kids don't let us sit in one place,they always need something to munch and this happens to be the easiest snack which can be prepared and stored in air tight containers.Kids will definitely love this crunchy brittles.This can be prepared in less than 15 minutes and moms are happy too that they can prepare something for kids,not only kids adults can munch too.This is similar to peanut chikki (kappalandi mittai).Give this a try !!




Ingredients
almond slices 1/2 cup
sesame seeds 1tbsp
sugar 1 cup
butter 2tbsp
salt 1/8 tsp


Method
  • Grease a square tray preferably 8* 8 pan with butter.
  • Roast the sesame seeds and almond slightly on a non stick pan for 2 minutes.Put off flame and keep aside in a plate(the residual heat may turn it brown so remove from pan immediately).
  • Heat the butter and let it melt.Add the sugar and salt,wait till the sugar starts to melt and start getting browned.Keep stirring.
  • It may take 4-5 minutes to get golden brown in color,put off flame.Remove from heat and add the almond slices and sesame seeds.Give a quick stir and transfer to the greased plate.
  • Flatten it with the back of spoon or spread evenly.Wait to cool about 10 minutes(to come to room temperature) and break in pieces,Enjoy !!!!

Servings~  about 12 square pieces

NOTES
* Please be very fast to remove the sugar from heat once it golden brown,otherwise it may get burnt.
* Also,be quick to stir the almond slices and transferring to the tray.
* Any left overs can be stored in air tight containers for days.
