Chinese Peanut Sesame Ginger Brittle is much like our Indian Peanut Brittle, except it has ginger in it. After making it and Amma tasting it, she commented that she has tasted something like this before. So you may never know, some of the version might include sonti, the dry ginger version as well.
This week I am doing the final week of BM#72, where I will be sharing Chinese dishes you can make at home. I will be sharing some very simple recipes, I know I have just done one, have selected some super simple ones, that may not actually require a recipe, nevertheless, those will be up. The reason being as always one is caught in the real life web and things go out of hand.
I am sure everybody have kept abreast of the happenings in our neck of the woods. The Jallikattu darna took a nasty turn yesterday, where the common man came to witness new and horrifying things first hand. With Kids at school, Parents visiting friends, with me at office, the day was never ending. I saw the police in action, driving away senseless people on roads. Walking literally miles to reach home.
So while today’s post was ready, I was in no mood to write. I was so glad everybody reached home safe and we are back to business today.
Ok, coming to this Chinese Peanut Sesame Ginger brittle, I bookmarked it when Sandhya posted it last week. I knew I was going to make it. I love making brittle and this combination is something I have not tried, even though I make peanut alone and sesame alone. Plus this had ginger. As Sandhya says 1 tsp was hardly noticed, yet it left a lingering taste for all to guess that it had ginger.
This was one of the fastest moving snack as everything got almost over before I could click the final pic. I made it just before dinner. So hubby dear enjoyed it for dessert. Then next day being a Saturday, it was getting disappeared fast. Peddu tasted it and was so upset that he got to taste the last piece!
Anyway I am supposed to make this very soon and I will do too..
