Chivra (Indian Snack Mix)
15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
11 ingredients
8 servings
Hot spicy snacks are very popular in India. The variety is unlimited. Chivra is enjoyed as a snack any time of the day and is usually spicy hot, though this one is milder. Of course, you can adjust the heat/cayenne to your level of tolerance. Here is a quick and easy version using several available cereals. For the version in the photo, I added about 1/2 cup raisins at the same time as the nuts and spices. Makes 8 (1/2 cup each) servings.
