Poha Chivda | Flatten Rice Mixtures

When it comes to snack, we just love to munch something with our tea and coffee. Not only cookies but our fried and non fried snack / namkeen are the best. This is poha chevda which is loved by everyone and I think you all make this too. This is my version of it, you can add nuts in it , or make  Papad Poha Chevdo/ crispy flatten disc and Flatten rice mix too. Its very similar to papad poha instead you just don't add papad in it . Only thing you have to make sure that you are using thin poha for this, thick poha for bataka poha not for this. 


2 cups of thin poha

1 tsp. powdered sugar
1 tsp. Red chili powder
Salt to taste

For Tempering

2 tbsp. oil
pinch of hing
1 tbsp. turmeric powder
5-6 curry leaves
2 tbsp. roasted peanuts
1 tbsp. roasted cashews
1 tsp. white sesame seeds
1 Green chili, cut in rounds

Method :

Bake poha in microwave for 3 minutes , or you can do that in stove top too. Just make it crispy.
Add Red chili powder, sugar and salt and mix it.
Heat oil in pan, Add green chilies, peanuts, curry leaves, turmeric powder, hing, sesame seeds and fry for minute or two.
Add the poha mixture to this tempering and mix nicely.
Your chivda is ready to munch it with hot cup of tea
Put it in airtight container and enjoy till it last.
