Spicy, crunchy, and an addictive savory snack. This mix is my take on the Indian snack “chivda”; for my girls, who cannot enjoy the chivdas from the Indian grocery store. The girls enjoy this when they come from school or when they are watching tv.
I normally “triple” “triple” up my batches so they last longer. In fact I use a box of each cereal . Making big batches of this mix avoids the family from reaching for the chips and other junky savories.
2 cups of mixed of unflavored cereals ( I used Cheerios, Corn flakes, and Rice Krispies. You can add pops for light sugar cereal)
1/2 cup dry unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup nuts and seeds (optional)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp of turmeric
1/2 tsp of red chili powder
salt to taste
1/2 tsp of sugar
1/2 cup raisins ( you can add your roasted nuts and seeds )
1/2 cup potato sticks
1 In a mixing bowl add all the cereals, coconut flakes, and nuts. Keep aside.
2 In a bowl add in the oil, turmeric, red chili powder and stir till well blended.
2 Pour the oil mixture into the cereal mix and toss till well coated.
3 Bake at 350F for 7 mins stirring after 4 mins .
4 Remove from the oven. Sprinkle the sugar and add the raisins and potato sticks. Cool and enjoy!
