Dryfruit Strawberry Chikki (Dryfruit Strawberry Fudge)



Chikki is a traditional ready-to-eat Indian sweet generally made from groundnuts and jaggery. There are several different varieties of chikki in addition to the most common groundnut chikki. Each chikki is named depending upon the ingredients used. Usually, ingredients such as puffed/roasted bengal gram, sesame, puffed rice, beaten rice, and Khopra (desiccated coconut) are used.

It is also extremely popular in Brazil. Some chikkis are made using a combination of these ingredients. Special chikkis are made out of cashews, almonds, and pistachios.

Though jaggery is the usual sweetener material, sugar is used as the base in certain types of chikkis. It is a very popular sweet item in both rural and urban South Asia (spanning India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka). Some also add glucose to the chikkis, which are usual there.
