A very easy and comparatively healthier version of Corn Chivda is here.
Corn Flakes(Plain variety) - 3 cups
Peanuts - a handful
Dalia(Roasted Gram dal) - 2 tbsp
Curry Leaves - 2-3 sprigs
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cashew pieces - 2 tbsp (optional)
Fennel seeds(Saunf) - 1 tbsp
Raisins - 1 tbsp
Powdered Sugar - 1 tsp
Oil - 4-5 tsp
Heat oil in a kadhai. Add peanuts and fry. When they are half done add dalia and fry both till crisp. Now add fennel seeds and curry leaves and fry till curry leaves become crispy. Add cashews pieces and fry for some more time. Now add raisins and fry till they swell. But dont let the raisins burn. Add all the other powders. Bring heat to lowest setting and add corn flakes. Mix everything properly. Switch off flame. Check taste and adjust spices. Enjoy with a cup of tea.
Note: i have used roasted peanuts and cashews. Also i have used dried curry leaves. So i have fried these only for a minute or so. But if using ordinary peanuts, cashews and fresh curry leaves I suggest frying all these over a low flame till crisp.
