Hi Friends ..
Today's recipe I learnt from my best friend Neelima ....She is always with me in my good or bad times. I am  very lucky to have a friend like her..bubbly, happy, smart, active and best quality talkative :-)

She is from Lucknow and they make lot of things at home ...She made this namkeen chivda at home and brought it to my place. I just loved it, asked the recipe and made it :-)
It came out perfectly ...thanks Neelima for sharing the recipe with me :-)


Ingredients:
1 small pack of Corn flakes
2 cups puffed rice
1/2 cup peanuts (with skin)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup broken cashews
Few curry leaves
A pinch asafoetida
1/4 tsp red chilly powder
1/4 cumin powderSalt to taste
1 tsp Sugar

Oil for frying

Method:
  1. Fry for raisins, cashews and peanuts in little oil and keep them aside. 
  2. Deep fry the corn flakes in a kadai till golden brown in colour and take them out on an absorbent paper. 
  3. Heat 1 tsp of oil in the non-stick kadhai, add curry leaves, puffed rice, raisins, cashews and corn flakes mixture. Mix well. 
  4. Add sugar, salt, red chilly powder and cumin powder. Mix well. 
  5. Your chivda is ready. Once it cools down, store it in an air tight container.
