Cornflakes mixture | chivda recipe – This is such a simple recipe. I just sauteed some nuts and readymade cereal cornflakes in ghee and mixed with some regular spices and salt. This could be a sweet and spicy snack. You can prepare and keep this snack for evening munching time or for special occasions like Diwali. Very easy to make, you can make this within 30 mins. Compared to store-bought, you can consider this as healthy as well.

I would like to roast all the nuts separately and finally mix with cornflakes. Some people roast a few nuts together and mix. I believe the nuts are roasted evenly well when you do it separately. So it’s totally up to you. Check below for detailed step by step recipe with pictures.
