Nuts are a rich protein source. But the issue lies in their accumulation of pitham. With more intake of nuts, our body pitham will start increasing which leads to an imbalance in our body and cause various diseases. As jaggery or vellam (in Tamil) can suppress the pitham kadalai mittai becomes a perfect protein source with no side effects.
Kadalaimittai or peanut candy from Tamilnadu are made of kadalai (peanut) and Jaggery. So with this combination, Kadalai Mittai becomes a candy with high Protein, Iron, and Selenium content. Also, it did not have any bad fat at all. There is no other better snack than kadalai mittai for your kids.
