The Chhaunk

Established in July 2021, “The Chhaunk'' is a Delhi/NCR based cloud kitchen startup that exclusively offers Bihari Food. With COVID-19 having altered – and still, in the process of altering – the definition of “normal” across the world, most industries are still scrambling to adjust. The food industry has suffered a lot too. But as we say in crisis lies opportunity. The two women entrepreneurs (Saas-Bahu duo) Mrs. Manjari Singh and Mrs. Hiranyamayi Shivani gathered a lot of courage to launch not just FOOD but an EXPERIENCE that takes you back to your home. They have always believed in themselves and conviction towards their cooking. They have been able to combat all the challenges that came their way. Setting up this business was not a planned thing for them, but during lockdown, Mrs. Hiranyami couldn't go to her home and got stuck. Since she loved cooking, this idea came up and it was beautifully implemented. Food recipe that comes from a mother has a lot of essence, relaxness, calmness and plethora of love. Well, The Chhaunk has got all of this because all the recipes are being given by Mrs. Hiranyami- the mother for Bihari Recipes. Good cuisine is something that everyone is fond of and it definitely binds us to create memories. With this thought of bringing street stories around food along with the traditional taste of Bihar, The Chhaunk is thrilled to share this amazing Bihari Platter to you so that their stories reach the fulfilling palates of your friends and family.

The Chhaunk’s USP

The Chhaunk - Every food has a story here.

From the chowks of Bihar, The Chhaunk aims to create an ecosystem that has a home feel. They are presenting one of the most diverse cuisines to the world which was always underestimated because of no focused approach by any brand which it always deserved. This amazing duo has proved that age has no bar and they have come with this amazing and exclusive cuisine. Both were always business-minded and they came up with this innovative idea.

The staple foods of Biharis are Bhat, Dal, Roti, Tarkari and Achar. Most Hindus in Bihar consume khichdi, a broth of rice and lentils seasoned with spices and usually served with side dishes as their mid-day meal during the weekend. However, the favourite dish of Bihari’s is Litti Chokha. While Litti is made up of Sattu, Chokha is a mix of smashed potato, tomato and brinjal.
