Corn Or Rice Flakes - Chivda

In my kitchen pantry..there is a box full of plain corn flakes. Bored to have the plain ones..Then i got an idea why dont i try making chivda using these instead of rice flakes(poha).

I made it and within 2 days it was finished off...Loved by my family... I made it a wee-bit spicy.. I am sure kids will enjoy it too.

  • Corn / Rice Flakes Plain - 1 Packet
  • Peanuts - 1/4 cup
  • Oil - 2 tsp
  • Dalia (Roasted Bengal Gram) - 4 tsbn
  • Desiccated Coconut - 2 tsbn
  • Salt to taste
  • Citric Acid - 1/4 tsp (optional)
  • Red chilli powder - 1tsp (acc to taste)
  • Turmeric a pinch
  • Sugar a pinch
  • Asafoetida (hing) a pinch
  • Curry leaves - 5 or 6
  • Red Chillies - 1 or 2 pieces
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Heat a big wok. Fry flakes till crisp on low flame. Keep aside
  • Heat oil in a wok. Add mustard seeds allow to splutter, add hing, curry leaves, red chillies, peanuts, dalia, turmeric fry till peanuts are done. switchoff the flame
  • Add flakes, redchilli powder, citric, sugar, salt, coconut

Who doesn't love snacks? The crunchier, the better.
I make a roasted low fat version, too.
