Flattened Rice Snack Mix


Ingredients:
  • Flattened rice (aval) – 3 Handfuls
  • Cashew nuts (broken into pieces) – 10
  • Peanut (broken into pieces) – 20
  • Dry roasted channa (Pottukkadalai) – 20
  • Mustard seeds – ¼ Teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder - ¼ Teaspoon
  • Cumin powder - ¼ Teaspoon
  • Green chili (slit into half) – 2
  • Curry leaf – 1
  • Salt as needed
  • Canola oil – 1 Tablespoon
 Method: 
  • Heat a tablespoon of oil over medium heat in a wide frying pan. Add mustard seeds, when they pop up add cashew, peanuts and channa. Sauté until they are roasted half way.
  • Add curry leaf, green chili, turmeric and cumin powders. Sprinkle salt. Toss them well.
  • Add pressed rice and gently toss until they are roasted. After roasting pressed rice will be crispy (it takes for about 7 to 10 minutes) and tasty.
  • It’s an excellent snack for tea or with a cup of hot milk.
 Note:
  • Flattened rice is also called beaten rice. It is dehusked rice, flattened into thin flakes. It is available in Indian stores in the name of Aval or Poha.
