Puffed Brown Rice Chivda


Chivda is one of the easiest snacks to pull through in a short time without much efforts. This dish gets prepared frequently in my kitchen as my picky daughter eats it without any complaints. This suits little kids' palates as it is not an overtly spicy dish. Feel free to add / omit ingredients as you like. For ideas, check chivdaspicy puffed rice and poha chivda.
(We simply call chivda type dishes as fried poha / fried puffed rice and so on. When I thought of posting this, I didn't know what to call it and called chivda since it is prepared along similar lines.) 

Ingredients: 
4 cups puffed brown rice
2 - 3 Tbsp of cashews / peanuts
2 handfuls of roasted chickpeas (dalia)
1/2 cup of kara boondhi
1- 2 Tbsp oil
Few curry leaves (wash and pat dry)
4-6 dried red chillies
Salt to taste

Method:
* Heat oil in a wide pan and add mustard seeds and cashews / peanuts.
* Fry until cashews / peanuts turn golden brown and then add dalia, curry leaves, red chillies and saute for few seconds.
* Next add puffed rice and salt. Saute for a couple of minutes or until the puffed rice is crispy. Turn off the stove.
* Let cool and transfer the mixture to an airtight container.
