This is the recipe for a popular Gujarati snack shared by my dear friend Raj's mom. Healthy and delicious, Patra can be made ahead of serving time and simply heated for 20-30 seconds in the microwave and tempered once your guests arrive.

If you're a mother, you know what it's like to have kids who are home all day during winter or summer break and get hunger pangs every other hour! When I was young, along with snacks like mathri, kachoris and laddoos, my mother would make batches of sugar-coated peanuts as well. This was before the era of potato chips and Doritos, when snacks could still potentially be healthy! This is my mother's very own recipe of sugar-coated peanuts. You can substitute peanuts with almonds, walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts.
