Chiwda is a sweet and spicy dish made of flattened rice, peanuts, almonds, raisins, roasted daliya, and seasoned with red chili powder or green chillies. It is one of the healthiest and simplest snacks to make. There is no frying, and instead of white Poha, red Poha can be used to make it even healthier.
How to Make Chiwda Crunchier?
● Allow at least 2 hours for the poha to dry in the sun.
● Microwave the poha for 30 to 45 seconds if you are short of time.
● If you microwave the poha flakes for any longer, they will curl up.
● In addition, roasting the poha over a low flame for a longer time results in crunchier Chiwda.
Recipe for Namkeen Chiwda
1. Heat the kadhai and pour in the oil.
2. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and hing to the heated oil.
3. Add the green chillies and curry leaves when they begin to sputter.
4. Then, over medium heat, add the cashews, daliya, peanuts, and turmeric powder, and cook for a few minutes.
5. Then turn the heat down to low and stir in the poha.
