Makkai No Chevdo / Corn Flakes Chivda

Makkai no chevdo / Corn Flakes Chivda is a famous and a must snack prepared during DiwaliActually, lots of sweets and savories keep coming from family and friends, prior five days, and mom makes just the planned sweets or snacks at home. But this time am excited, as I am planning and preparing few savories myself :-).

This makkai no chevdo is my all time yumm... snack, as its got a bit of sweetness, I like this chevdo much more than other chevdo's.. :-)

Makkai / Corn flakes 1 cup
Peanuts 1/4th cup
Raisins 2 tbsp
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Red chili powder 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Sugar 1 tbsp
Oil for frying 
Curry leaves few

Heat oil in a pan for frying. Once heated, fry makkai, in the following way. Take a colander add the makkai / corn into it, and place the colander on the frying oil. Since the oil is heated, the makkai will immediately get fried. Take and transfer on a tissue paper. Doing little by little in batch, is better. Then transfer to a bowl.

Next in the same colander, fry the peanuts and curry leaves the same way and place on tissue paper. This can be done in one batch itself.

When the oil is absorbed, and yet the makkai, peanuts and curry leaves are yet warm, transfer it to a bowl. Now add raisins, turmeric powder, red chili powder, sugar and salt and mix well.

When cooled, transfer to a air tight jar.

Enjoy it with family and friends....
