Mixed Seeds Chikki

Mixed Seeds Chikki is a healthy and delicious Indian style super energy bar aka chikki made with jaggery, super seeds and nuts.

Winter is here and it’s getting really cold outside. Scarfs, hats and coats are already out and I just love making warm and comforting bowls of soups for dinner. All I want to do is just lazing around in my blankie on the couch with a cup of green tea or bowl of soup and mazing around.

It’s the weather that makes me lazy and I totally hate going out, especially when it is windy too. This is the weather when I make all kinds of warm things to keep us heated enough from the inside too. Pinni, atta laddo, sukhadi, besan halwa and of course all varieties of stews, chilli and soups to make us cosy. One such quick and easy snack is this mixed seeds and nuts chikki that I always make a jar full of in the winters.

Believe me, these mixed seeds chikki are so addictive that they won’t even last a week. I mean healthy and super delicious too. What else do we need when kids can eat them without hesitation.
