Trip to Mumbai
Buying Chikki at Lonavala! You have gone to Lonavala for the first time ever and someone has told you that it's famous for chikki. So you wander around the roads parallel to both sides of the railway station and see the following Chikki stores…National, Maganlal, Rupam, Navratna, another Maganlal, Mahavir, Raval, another Maganlal, Super, Vaishali, another Maganlal, another Maganlal, Mangal, Panchratna, Coopers, Friends, Purohit, Santosh, Golden and another Maganlal and then you are left confused as to which place you should buy it from. You then try and compare two shops and you are bound to be confused further as you will get the same 30 varieties of chikki for more of less the same price per kilo. So what is the Lonavala chikki all about? Here is everything you wanted to know about the Lonavala chikki and didn't know whom to ask. Origin of chikki in Lonavala Lonavala was so named because of the word 'lenya' which means caves in Marathi. There are many rock-cut caves, which surround Lonavala. It was Shri Maganlal Agarwal (the fourth generation of Maganlal Agarwal's family is now running the chikki business) who brought chikki to Lonavala more than 125 years ago. His great grandson, Ashutosh Agarwal told me that it all started when Shri Maganlal began selling 'gurdana', a mixture of jaggery and groundnuts in a huge sack to the laborers who were laying tracks on the Khandala–Pune railway line. (Opened to traffic in 1858) He used to stand with the big sack, next to the railway line, literally outside where the Maganlal's main shop stands now in the market street on the east side and sold the 'gurdana'. 'Gurdana' is rich in protein and iron and the laborers used to consume it for the instant energy. Later, the simple 'gurdana' graduated to the groundnut chikki and over the years other chikki varieties were introduced. Nevertheless, the whole and crushed groundnut chikki are still Maganlal's bread and butter product making up for 70% of the total chikki varieties sold. Choosing the right Chikki Recipe Chikki is made from four basic ingredients… jaggery, sugar, liquid glucose (it acts as a binding agent) and the basic material (groundnut, cashew, til etc). If crushed groundnut chikki has to be made then a measured portion of the groundnut is roasted and then crushed after its skin has been removed. In a kadhai, over a flame, syrup of jaggery and liquid glucose is prepared. The crushed groundnut is added to this mixture and some sugar powder is added. This prepared mixture is pressed and rolled out on wooden planks to make a uniform thick layer, which is then cut square pieces with a cutter. This becomes chikki, which is ready to be packed and sold. Variety Chikki are available in more than 30 varieties. So choose the one whose basic ingredient you like. They have cashew, groundnut (crushed and whole), chana, kesar pista, badam, coconut, rajgira, kurmura, til, dry fruits mixed and permutations and combination of all these.Some chikki which I thought were unique (may not be tasty) were ginger, honey peanut and mint crush. The price per kilo starts at Rs 80 for groundnut, til, chana chikki to Rs 520 for kesar pista. Some chikki like strawberry, mango, chocolate would be made without jaggery and would have mava and fruit pulp in them. The calorie conscious need not worry, there are "low calorie and sugar free" chikki like Groundnut (whole and crush) available. Jaggery is not added to some chikki like cashew as it becomes very dark and does 'not look good' in Ashutosh Agarwal's words. With so little differentiation between different brands, it is very difficult to make out what makes a good quality chikki. A good and fresh chikki will be crisp and not soft. The chikki sold on the trains may generally not be fresh so do look up the manufacturing date. The color of the chikki should medium brown (groundnut), i.e. not too dark or light. If it too light then the manufacturer has used less jaggery to save on costs and if it too dark then it has been in the kadhai for a longer time than required. The manufacturer might try and save on the costs of expensive ingredients like cashews, badam, pista etc by putting less of it in the chikki. You can make it out by just looking at the chikki as the distance between two cashew pieces will be more and there will be more sugar/liquid glucose added. Some manufacturers may use materials of low grade quality (cashews, groundnuts, almonds etc). Brand As I have mentioned before, there are around 30-40 brands of chikki sold in Lonavala. So which one is the best? I generally buy chikki from three stores. Maganlal, National and A-1. Why these three. Firstly because the quality of chikki sold is better than the others. Secondly, one of them is the inventor of the Lonavala chikki and so is bound to be good (Maganlal) and thirdly, because these three brands were the ones that my grandfather, uncle and father used to buy for many many years, so check on word of mouCashew Apple or Marañon
We saw these growing alongside the road in public right-of-ways down in the lowlands along the Pan American Highway and decided we would stop and pick a few someday since we are fans of the cashew nuts. One day when stopping at a fruit and vegetable stand, we saw these cashew apples or maranons, as they are called, so we bought some and brought them home. What happened next produced one of those memorable events which will forever be etched in my memory of our early days in Panama. After studying the fruit for awhile, I thought how difficult could it be to get inside that gray thingy and get the cashew out? Trust me, you don't want to know. The maranon is VERY tenacious at not letting you inside. It resisted knives, screwdrivers and needlenose pliers. Finally I got the outside husk to part enough to catch a glimpse of the elusive cashew nut (there is only one per fruit). About this same time I managed to get a nibble of a part of the hidden cashew into my mouth. Oh my gosh! I think the word cashew may be spanish for 'gotcha!' ow - Ow! - OW! Various places on my hands and arms began to get a firey itch. My tongue was on fire and started to go numb. That's when I must have scratched an itch on my face and was further introduced to the "caustic phenolic resin" called urushiol, which was now in the corner of one eye. Flushing with lots of water eventually put out the fire. Just take my word for it. If you want cashews, it's far easier and safer to get them out of a can. I seriously doubt that maranons will ever catch on in the produce aisles of north american grocery stores. But you do have to agree that it is an unusual looking fruit. Just don't try this at home. I obtained this picture from Wandering Piscean and the earlier one from Wikipedia. I was too mad at my own piece of fruit to take its picture.
