Corn Flakes Chivda

corn flakes cereal chivda
Corn Chivda is made from Corn Poha/Flattened Corn.  Corn Poha is easily available in any Indian grocery store.  Before making Chivda Corn/Makai/Makka Poha is deep fried.  Alternatively, Corn Chivda made from Corn Flakes Cereal is comparatively less oily, with fewer calories and equally crunchy and tasty.

Corn Flakes Cereal - 5 cups
Raw Peanuts/Groundnuts - 3/4 cup
Dalia/Roasted Gram Dal/Roasted Chickpeas - 1/4 cup
Cashews - 10 (optional)
Dry Coconut Slices - 1 tbsp
Curry Leaves - few sprigs
Green Chillies - 5
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric/Haldi - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing - 1/4 tsp
Powdered Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp

1. Wash green chillies, curry leaves and pat them dry.
2. Heat about 2 - 3 tbsp oil in a pan and fry the peanuts till they turn slightly brown.  Keep them aside.  Fry cashews, dalia and dry coconut as well.
3. Heat the same pan, in the leftover oil, add mustard seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves, chopped green chillies and turmeric.  Turn off the heat when green chillies are fried.  You can add a few cloves of crushed garlic as well.
4. Now add corn flakes followed by salt and powdered sugar.  Mix all the ingredients well.  Do not add salt and sugar in hot oil, lumps will be formed.  After cooling, store Corn Flakes Chivda in an air tight container.  Add more oil if required.
5. Serve as a crunchy snack or with finely chopped onions, tomatoes.
