Method for preparing Cornflakes Chivda with step by step photos:

 

I have used here the dried yellow coloured cornflakes also known as Corn poha or makai poha. you get them easily in the Indian grocery shops. You can make this chivda, with the ready to eat cornflakes too. In this case, you just need to lightly roast the cornflakes in a bit of oil. The dry fruits can also be roasted with little oil or without oil.
So, let’s start…

 

1 – Heat 250 ml cooking oil on high flame in a kadhai. Once the oil gets heated set the gas flame on medium heat and first fry cornflakes by adding a small quantity enough to fry properly. Don’t over fry cornflakes. Remove immediately once they expand, become golden & crisp with the help of a frying sieve ladle and remove in a big mixing plate or bowl. Don’t brown the corn flakes.

3 – Now it’s time to give tadaka to chivda.
For that heat, the 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in a small pan and add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, crushed garlic cloves and curry leaves. Once cumin and mustard seeds start to crackling, set gas flame on a very low flame and then add chivda masala, coriander powder, red chilli powder, sugar and salt to taste. Just fry for a minute only then add this tadka to chivda.

4 – Transfer this chivda to a big pot and mix well by taking care not to break the crisp corn flakes until the tadaka mixture blends with chivda.  Check the taste and add more salt or sugar if required. Cover the lid and keep it aside for an hour. Let the chivda cool completely before storing it. Don’t store chivda mixture while it is hot or warm, or else it would lose crush and turn soggy.

Tips for Cornflakes Chivda: –

1 – The frying sieve ladle should be dry and so the ingredients. You will be frying everything one after the other, so the prep works help and is efficient too.

2 – I have used peanuts and cashew nuts in this chivda recipe, but you can use the dry fruits of your choice.

3 – You can easily customize the flavourings according to your taste preference. For seasoning, I opted for simple and well balanced salty, spicy, sweet, and tangy flavours. But feel free to choose your own spice blend, like salt, turmeric, red chilli powder, chaat masala powder, and citric acid powder.

4 – Fry the ingredients on medium-high heat and keep a close watch while frying. They tend to burn in just a few seconds and will spoil the taste of the entire preparation.

5 – This chivda stays fresh and crispy for up to 1 month. But if for some reason it turns slightly soggy, then place it in a baking tray, and bake it for about 10-15 minutes in a 120°C preheated oven. Let it cool completely and then store it again in a clean airtight jar.
