Notes

  1. 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.
  2. You can take Chana and peanuts in equal quantities or in any other ratio you prefer. I have taken very less peanuts as they are rich in calories. You can even skip peanuts.
