Inspired by the Marathi word chikkat (sticky), chikki has the British and the Railways to thank for it. When a railway line was being built from Mumbai to Lonavala, an ingenious sweet shop owner thought up a quick snack to provide the labour with glucose and carbs. It became a hit with the workers, and eventually travelled to the rest of India in different forms. Our Soft Coconut Jaggery Chikki is a local speciality from Konkan. Try it!
About The Seller
Mother and daughter duo, Neelima Madhukar Naik and Snehal Pravin Naik, laid the foundation of Naik’s Konkan Food Bazaar way back in 2006. Neelima’s confidence in her long-perfected recipes combined with the highest quality of local ingredients fuelled their modest business providing Konkani food essentials including pickles, papad, flour and speciality products under one roof. 15 years later, the family business employs nine hardworking women and is run by her grandson Siddharth who takes utmost pride in his Aaji’s recipes and describes her as a relentless woman, who even at the age of 75 insists on making her own pickles and mixes.
