Chivda - A famous Indian snack common in the Maharashtrian home. A crunchy mixture of flattened rice flakes, nuts and raisins. A perfect make-ahead snack that can be stored for quite sometime, perfect for your road trips or travel. In the traditional version, each ingredient is deep fried in oil and them combined together. But as health consciousness is increasing rapidly, so it can also be either roasted or shallow fried. The one below is a basic Chivda recipe. There are so many variations to it. You can add puffed rice, almonds, cereals (unsweetened) etc. So go ahead and make your own crunchy mix.
