You might not have access to fresh fruit, or you might just be on the lookout for a healthy snack, for either or for both, Huki is your saviour. Started and owned by Mayank, Huki (meaning ‘to try’ in his local language) sells air-dried fruits that have been slow-dried over eight-nine hours under the sun. There is no added preservative, flavouring or sugar added to their products and these guys make optimum use of age-old tried and tested heirloom techniques to dry their produce. Not just are the fruits locally sourced from wholesalers to avoid wastage, but also there is total omission of freeze drying and vacuum drying processes, hazardous to the environment as they are. Did we tell you that they can dehydrate and air dry ANY FOOD of your choice ? Now we did.
Huki would primarily sell three fruit options, watermelon, apple and pineapple, with or without seasonings but now, they seem to have expanded their range to include muskmelon, sweet lime, papaya and even beetroot (perfect for salads and smoothies). The best part being that these are all crispy and not soggy. The apple and watermelon variants are sweet, crispy and resemble actual shrivelled up fruit slices, as though in their old age. Same applies to the pineapple but here, the sweet and sour flavour erupts in your mouth as you bite into the crispy fruit. For that tangy bitter-sour hit, try the Sweet Lime and take it from us, you will not be disappointed and neither will you miss the sour punks. You could use these in cocktails, mocktails and even salads. Jazz them up by ordering seasoned packs of those fruits, coming in jaljeera and chaat masala variants. They have a standard 20g size that is sold for INR 50.
