Paper Avalakki Chivda | Mixture

This is a snack with the evening coffee / tea. Also a good alternative to the regular popcorn in the Movie time. Paper Avalakki is called thin poha (Thin flat rice). There are a lot more varieties of this, similar one made with puffed rice (Kadle puri). This is popular in karnataka. People from different regions make different versions based on local product availability, I guess. Check below for my version of crunchy munchy chivda.
