I tasted this chivda in a friend's house. After coming home googled for the recipe and to my wonder most of the recipes called for deep frying the corn flakes. So called the friend's mom and Aunty told me, deep frying is not required and she told me the recipe. So, here is a quick and healthy as well as delicious version of Corn flakes chivda.
Corn Flakes - 3 cups [I used Kellogg's (Original) Corn Flakes]
Hand full of roasted peanuts
Roasted gram /Pottu kadalai - 1tablespoon
Few Cashews and Raisins
Few Curry Leaves
Turmeric powder -1/8teaspoon
Chilli powder- 1teaspoon(adjust to your spice level)
Fennel seeds-1/2teaspoon (optional)
Oil- 1 to 2 tablespoons
Heat oil in a wide skillet, add in the fennel seeds and let them splutter.
Then add the roasted peanuts, cashews,roasted gram dal (pottu kadalai) along with the curry leaves. Fry on medium heat till the nuts turn golden in colour.
Now add the corn flakes and toss it well, switch off the flame.
Crunchy and delicious chivda is ready to munch!
Its a guilt free snack and tastes great! You can use the frosted flakes instead of corn flakes, in that case, avoid adding sugar.
