Chikki Bar is a concept that originated with a family recipe. Mohnish’s grandmother would make these small bars or sometimes round shaped balls using peanuts, sesame seeds, and jaggery. Mohnish thought this is something everyone would love. Mohnish wanted to learn how to make these so he spent time with Grandmother learning. He was surprised to learn that these snacks were made with so few ingredients that were natural with health benefits. There were no food colorings, no preservatives, and no chemicals. Being a vegetarian all his life, Mohnish has the habit of reading the ingredients label before purchasing anything. He noticed that he had no idea what many of the ingredients on the package were and most of them he couldn’t pronounce. This is what led Mohnish to launch Chikki Bar.
