Corn flakes mixture & peanuts masala

Cornflakes Mixture (Cornflakes chivda) & Peanuts masala

Cornflakes mixture also known as Cornflakes chivda is generally a deep fried savory mixture consisting of many ingredients that add to its taste. This also includes dry fruits and spices of choice. My aim is to avoid deep frying in oil. I wanted to make it without deep fry but retaining the crispness.So I roasted corn flakes,flattened rice (poha) and peanuts in salt medium and added roasted fried grams and spices.

I have just presented a simple presentation of ingredients but you may add cashew nuts and raisins if you wish. I used only two tsp of oil to mix all the ingredients together. The cornflakes that we use here is different from the cereal that we take for breakfast. You can use the ready to use cereal cornflakes, roast them a bit and add in the spice mixture.

Peanuts masala – This is a spicy and crunchy teatime snack where fried peanuts are coated with besan flour. The specialty of this recipe is that peanuts are not deep fried in oil. It is roasted on heated salt layer. By avoiding deep frying in oil, this recipe is a healthy version. You can try this method easily at home and enjoy.
