A great Indian snack to be enjoyed at any time. Use your imagination when it comes to the nuts and seeds. I vary the selection from among cashews, peanuts, walnuts, pistachios, shelled sunflower or pumpkin seeds, but almost anything goes here if you have favorites. The last time I made these, I added fresh curry leaves and dried kiwi (small dice) and it was wonderful! I'm pretty sure you can toss in any dried fruit here in place of, or addition to, the raisins. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks. We usually double the cumin, nuts and seeds because...... well, because we're pigs

Recipe Ingredients for Cornflakes Chivda (db)

1 tablespoons oil
1/4 teaspoon cumin seed
1/4 cup shelled peanuts or mixed nut, of your choice
1/8 cup golden raisin
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder (to taste)
1/6 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 kosher salt (to taste. 1 teaspoon works for me.)
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
1 1/2 cups corn flakes

Recipe Directions for Cornflakes Chivda (db)

  1. Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Wait until they sizzle, then toss in the raisins (or other dried fruit pieces) and nuts. Stir a minute.

  2. 2Keep on very low heat and stir in the chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and sugar.

  3. 3Mix in the lime juice, keeping your face averted because the oil will splatter.

  4. 4Finally gently fold in the cornflakes over low heat for about 3-4 minutes until the cornflakes are well coated with the spice blend. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container at room temperature
