2 cups of peanuts
1 cup of sugar
1 tbsp oil

Heat an earthen pan and fry the peanuts
Remove the peanut skin
Grind the peanut into a coarse powder
Take care not to turn it into a fine powder

Heat the sugar in a thick-bottomed pan and stir until it turns brown
Add the coarsely powdered peanuts to the sugar and continue stirring for sometime
Switch off the flame
Stir for some time more
Transfer the mixture to the vessel which has been arranged to set the candy
Level the contents with another vessel which has to be flat-bottomed
Cut the candy into the shapes you prefer
The tasty peanut candy will be set within 15-20 minutes
After it sets and cools to room temperature, store the candy in an airtight container
