This is a very simple mixture compared to the traditional South Indian mixture. All you need is just 4 main ingredients. Not only it is easy to prepare but also tastes very delicious. As Diwali is approaching, I wanted to share this easy mixture recipe. I saw this on a television show long time back and had noted it down. Adding grated fried potato makes this mixture super delicious. Today we will learn how to make aval mixture/poha chivda following this easy recipe.
Wash, peel the skin and grate potato using the blade with big holes. The grated potato should be a little thick and not fine. Grate just before frying to prevent discoloration.
Roast peanuts and remove the skin. I bought roasted peanuts, cleaned it and added to the mixture.
Heat oil, add the aval and fry it. Remove it with a slotted ladle and keep it aside.
In the same oil, add grated potato and fry until golden brown, remove it and place it in a colander.
In the same oil, fry cashew nuts and curry leaves separately. Now mix the fried potato, aval/poha, cashew nuts, roasted peanuts (you do not have to fry peanuts, just add roasted peanuts) and curry leaves.
Add hing, salt needed and chilli powder. Mix everything until it is well coated with the spices.
Store it in a bottle or airtight container and enjoy. This stays good for 10-12 days.
