Chivda (4 Instant Diwali snacks made @ home)

4 Instant Diwali snacks made @ home

For me I knew only the South Indian mixture as I even have eaten it n number of times, but later only knew there are many sorts in mixture like Bombay mixture, this Chivda etc. I tasted this Chivda 2 months back when Vj brought this from Pune. It was LaxmiNarayan Best chivda and I must say, it was indeed the best chivda I have ever had. The poha was light, airy and crisp. Along with the nuts and raisin and spice, it was really tasting great. I emptied the whole pack (and later worried about the calories ).

A Very easy, just need to gather the ingredients, fry and toss with the spice powders. I understand there are many low fat versions which I have to yet try, but first thing I wanted to try this deep fry version. May be later I will try and post the low fat version.


  • Flattened rice (Poha / Aval) – 1 cup
  • Fried gram dal – 1/2 cup
  • Peanut – 1/2 cup
  • Cashew nut – 1/4 cup
  • Raisin – 2- 3 tbsp
  • Salt – as needed
  • Oil – 1 -2 tbsp
  • Sesame seeds – 2 tbsp
  • Asafoetida (Hing) – 1/4 tsp
  • Turmeric – 1/4 tsp
  • Red chilli powder – 2 tsp


  1. Bring together and keep all the ingredients needed for the chivda. Heat oil in kadai. with a metal strainer, deep fry each ingredient separately.
  2. I fried poha first, but i like to recommend to fry it lastly.
  3. Roast cashew nut, peanut, fried gram dal (pottu kadalai/ chutney dal) until golden in medium heat , raisins until its bloated and drain in paper towel. I kept poha separately during a bowl with kitchen towel.
  4. Take a separate bowl and keep all the fried items in it.
  5. Once done, heat a broad pan and add oil. Splutter sesame seeds and switch off the flame. Add asafoetida, turmeric, red chilli powder and blend well.
  6. Add the fried items, salt and mix/ toss well to coat everything evenly
  1. It retains many oil, so confirm to empty it overflow kitchen tissue.
  2. I love the sesame seeds and asafoetida flavor best within the mixture.
  3. I added 1/2 cup cashew nuts and located it an excessive amount of . So reduced the quantity in my recipe.
  4. You can fry dry coconut sliced thinly. It adds nice flavour. I could not get so I omitted.
