Khaana Collective: Shanika Hillocks

Meet Khaana Collective contributor Shanika Hillocks!

Shanika Hillocks is a woman of many talents. Not only do I always learn something new from her thoughtful pieces in Condé Nast Traveler to Tasting Table to Thrillist, Shanika also runs influencer marketing for E. & J. Gallo Winery and a host of other clients all with the goal of spearheading marketing campaigns that are inclusive, equitable and effective. It’s a mystery how she finds the time for it all while also making me drool with everything she posts on her Instagram feed.

I’m so thankful to know Shanika and for her friendship. From the minute we connected over a shared love of achaar on Instagram, she has been nothing but supportive for everything I do here at Brooklyn Delhi. I’m thrilled to share more of Shanika’s story with you. We’ll also be posting a sneak peek at her recipe later today so look out for it.

Vegans and vegetarians rejoice: pan-seared leeks serve as the canvas to the warming Coconut Cashew Korma Sauce. Elevate this side dish with crisped garlic and a shake or two of Guntur Sannam hot sauce.

Enjoy the recipe here:
