Roast the peanut in Microwave safe bowl for about 2 mins, till it gives out a nice aroma.Take out and cool down for 5 mins.Rub the peanuts well with your palm to remove the skin. Remove the skin completely.Here is my Daughter is helping me to peel.

Take a heavy bottomed vessel,add grated jaggery,crushed cardamon and  water.Bring to boil on a medium flame.Boil till the syrup reaches the thread consistency. To check the consitency of the syrup, pour the syrup into a cup of cold water. If it forms a ball the syrup is ready.

Takeout the syrup from the stove.Mix it with the peanut. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes.Make it  into small balls using rice flour/oil , so that the syrup does not stick to your hands.
