Makyacha Chivda

Chivda is very famous snack of Maharashtrian & North Karnataka people. There are different types of chivdas. Most Famous is "Poha Chivda". Poha chivda is alsways there in my kitchen. But this time I tried some different one that is Makyacha Chivda (Corn Chivda). It taste so yummmm. In this Summer Vacation I am planning to carry this Chivda instead of Poha chavda for Picnic.


Makyache Pohe (Corn Poha) - 500Gms
Roasted Peanuts - 1,1/2 Cups
Dalya (Roasted Gram Dal) - 1 Cup
Cashew Nuts - 1/2 Cup
Green Chilies - 6-7
Red chilli Powder -1 1/2 Tea Spoon
Powdered Sugar - 1 Table Spoon
Coriander Powder - 1 Table Spoon
Badishop Pud (Sauf Powder) - 1Tea Spoon
Aamchur (dry mango powder) - 1 Tea Spoon
Sesame seeds - 2 Tea Spoon
Cumin Seeds - 1 Tea Spoon
Oil - 3/4 Cup.
Curry Leaves - 15-16
Salt to taste


First of all roast the Corn Poha in Microwave oven on High Power for 1-2 Minutes. (according to your Microwave). You can deep fry the pohas, but I prefer to roast it in Microwave only. Heat oil in a thick bottom kadai, now add cumin seeds, Mustard seeds, Asafetida, and turmeric powder. Then add Chopped Chilies, curry leaves, Sesame seeds and mix it. Then add cashew, peanuts, roasted gram dal. Flame should be low. Now add powdered sugar, Coriander powder, Sauf Powder, Aamchur, Red chilli Powder and saute it for 1 minute. Now remove it from the flame. After 5 minutes add Corn Poha and Salt, mix it neatly. Cool it for half an hour, store it in air tight container.

I want to contribute my post for Trupti's Recipes for the rest of us - Picnic Eats Started by Ramki of One Page Cookbooks

and Lakshmi's SWE: Meals on Wheels event.

Is makache pohe different from corn flakes? Can you adapt this reciepe for corn flakes???? Please answer sooon.(I always have leftover corn flakes when my husband gets over his fitness bug after some days...) If not please post how to use my cornflakes in any other ways....

Khaugiri said...

@Bharti - Makyache pone is different than cornflakes. You can make chivda of it but don't fry or roast it. Again taste is not same because of the flavours of cornflakes. Just try it.
