Recipe Notes

  • I have added more of chana and peanuts as we prefer less sweet. You can reduce the total quantity of these to 150 gm from 200 gm.
  • You can take Chana and peanuts in equal quantities or in any other ratio you prefer. I have taken very few peanuts as they are rich in calories. You can even skip peanuts.
