KADALAI MITTAI/PEANUT CHIKKI/GROUNDNUT CANDY FOR KIDS

Hello Friends!I hope all of you all keeping good .People in North India please take extra care of yourself because of the smoggy winter prevalent.There were no posts from me for the past two days because of the horrible pollution which has bombarded us.

You may ask me why so much of stress on this .It is because it is our regular snack.We don’t send packed snack/ready made food as our son’s snack.
