When it comes to any mithai, there is no disputing the fact that anything that is homemade with love tastes much better than store-bought ones. This holds true for chikkis too! Yes, chikki – the wonderful Indian snack that continues to enchant several generations of people with its timeless charm.

Here is a detailed step-by-step recipe that shows you how to make Daria Chikki at home. Chikki-making is an art, but this recipe will surely help you master it. Just make sure you keep all the required items ready on the kitchen platform before you begin making the chikki, and make sure you use only an aluminium kadhai to get the right temperature and texture.

While the chikki is still hot, remember to turn it upside down frequently as described in the recipe so that both sides will be smooth and glossy. It stays fresh in an airtight container for at least one month!
