Some foods like revari and chikki make a short appearance during peak winter and when they do, Indian households stack them up to have them almost every day. Chilkki or gajak is a sweet Indian snack or dessert that spells warmth and comfort. Chikki made of gur and peanuts is the most common one you'll find in confectionery shops and roadside stalls. But there is a huge variety of chikki out there that you can explore to try it in different flavours and textures.
