Chuda with Rice Cereal..

I got this great recipe from my friend A. She said this is a quick way of making chuda and moreover its low calorie one. You can think of it last minute provided you have all the ingredients and it gets done in about 5 minutes.Saves you all the work of frying the poha to make it crisp and all. Plus the crispies are already ready, so just mixing the other ingredients is your job.


Crisp Rice cereal - 2 cups
Dalia/Putani/Roasted spilt chickpeas - 2 tbsp
Peanuts - 2 tbsp
Raisins - 1 tbsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Poha Masala - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 5-6 ( I did not add this )
Haldi/ Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt - to taste
Sugar - 1 tsp
Hing powder - a pinch
Oil - 2 tsp


- Heat the oil in a wide pan or kadhai, fry the peanuts and the Dalia and then remove them onto a plate. Add the mustard seeds to the oil, when they start spluttering, add the jeera, curry leaves, hing powder. Turn the heat to very low, add the turmeric powder, poha masala, sugar, salt, raisins. Add the peanuts and dalia to this. Mix all well.
- Add the crisp rice cereal to this and mix everything well. Turn off heat.
- Cool before storing in airtight container.

P.S: If you do not have Poha masala, you can just add chilli powder, some fennel and coriander powder.
