Chikki is an assorted sweet prepared in south Asian countries and popular in India especially in states of Maharashtra , Gujrat and southern India
Chikki is an product providing high energy and source of glucose providing immediate relief after tiresome activities like athletic sports , physical exercises
It is a food product which is having higher calorie value.
Currently Chikki available in market are having fat content
The reason for high fat is
Oil content in groundnuts , sesame and coconut which are used in preparation
100 gm of groundnut/sesame/coconut has 25 to 30 ml oil present(25 to 30%)
In low fat chikki out of 25 to 30 % oil present,20 percent oil is removed from groundnuts/sesame/coconut
Fats are required by our body hence instead of fat free, we remove some maximum fat and keep some
All the fat is not removed
Current Status: We are conducting training program on various food recipe for SHGs.
