An healthier replacement for chocolate bars, these crunchy bars are as good to taste as they are nutritious!

Preparation Time : 5 mins.
Cooking Time : 10 mins.

Makes 6 bars.

1 cup puffed rice (mamra), toasted
¼ cup grated jaggery (gur)
¼ cup sesame seeds (til), toasted
a pinch cardamom powder (elaichi)
oil for greasing
1. Melt the jaggery in a heavy bottomed pan, on a slow flame until it caramelizes.
2. Remove from the fire and add in the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
3. Pour this mixture onto a greased marble or stone surface.
4. Using a large greased rolling pin, roll out the mixture to a 150 mm. x 112 mm.
5. (6″ x 4½”) rectangle and 12 mm. (½”) thickness.
6. Cut into 75 mm. x 27 mm. (3″ x 1½”) bars.
7. Cool and break into individual bars.

Please ensure that you do not touch this mixture when it is hot, as hot jaggery can cause burns.
