Poha Chivda

Poha Chivda is basically made in many homes, to be had as tea time as munch, also served to guests when at home, and also made during Diwali as a Namkeen munch snack. Its easy to make and soo delicious too. For this chivda, we will need thin quality poha / beaten rice.

Poha - Thin Quality 2 cups
Peanuts 3/4 th cup
Dariya / Roasted Gram 1/2 cup
Oil 1 cup
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Curry leaves 12 to 15
Green chilies 2, chopped
Turmeric powder 1 tsp 
Sugar 1 tbsp
Salt 1 tbsp


Firstly roast poha for just a minute or so and take it and keep ready aside.

Now in  a pan heat oil. Fry peanuts until brown and transfer to a plate.

Same way fry  dariya / roasted gram dal in the same oil and transfer to the same plate.

Now in the same remaining oil, add mustard seeds, curry leaves, green chili and turmeric powder and saute. Be careful turmeric doesn't gets burnt. 

In a big plate, take roasted poha, fried peanuts, fried dariya, tempered curry leaves, green chilies and turmeric powder and mix well. 

Add salt and sugar.

Mix well.

Transfer to a airtight jar.

Enjoy with family during tea time or serve to guests.
