Corn Flakes Chivda / Corn Flakes Mixture

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.
Reduce the heat to low, add in the chilli powder-turmeric powder-sugar and salt, mix it well till the raw smell from the powders are gone.
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.

  5. You know? I just made aval chivda for tea time snack. Aduthu corn flack chivada than. BTW, for the Urad dal rice, It is better to use split urad dal with skin. If you don't have, you can use the regular split urad dal without skin. I never tried it with whole urad dal till now.
