Tarla Dalal    Dear Jacob, This is a member contributed recipe. But to the best of our knowledge, this chikki has a longer shelf like (upto a month if stored in an air-tight container) when made in winter season. But when made in rainy season, it may turn soggy or chewy due to excess moisture and when made in summer season, it may turn soggy or chewy due to excess heat. In both these later seasons, it should be stored in an air-tight container and consumed within a day or as soon as possible.
