Chivda/Aval mixture

Today's recipe under traditional dishes for blogging Marathon#23 is Chivda a guilt free snack.This tea time snack is made with rice flakes(aval) which is popular in North India.We make the similar version of chivda with the puffed rice and follwed the same procedure.
This chivda can be made with both thin and thick variety of poha,today I used the thick variety.Now on to the recipe.......


Thick Poha/rice flakes/aval1cup
Roasted gram dhal/pottukadalai1/4cup
Cashews/mundidri paruppu 2tbs(broken)
Fresh Coconut Pieces 2tbs
Green Chilly(finely chopped)2nos.
Curry leaves/karivepillai2sprigs
Red chilly powder/milagai podi1/2-1tsp
Turmeric powder/manjal podi1/4tsp


  • Dry roast the poha/aval in pan in a medium flame till it becomes crisp and set it aside.
  • Heat a wide mouth pan with the oil,fry the coconut pieces,green chilly and curry leaves till it turns brown and crisp.
  • Then goes in peanuts,roasted gram dhal and cashews,fry it for a minute.
  • Now add the chilly powder,turmeric powder and turn off the stove.
  • Finally add the fried poha,salt,sugar and mix it well till everything gets mixed well.
  • Store it in an air tight container.

  • Make sure after adding the red chilly powder and turmeric powder turn off the stove otherwise it will burn and becomes black.
  • Originally the recipe has dried coconut(copra),as it is not available here used the fresh coconut pieces and fried.
  • The chivda tastes even better the next day,as the flavors get incorporated well.
  • Crushed garlic can also be added along with the curry leaves for extra flavor.
