Pop a spoonful into your mouth and savour the crunchiness of this delectable snack! An assortment of ingredients ranging from poha and peanuts to cashews and curry leaves gives this Poha Chivda a range of textures, while a choice of spice powders gives it a nice savoury aroma and flavour. While it is perfect to have on a cold, rainy day, with a cup of chaai, this versatile snack is also light enough to enjoy on a hot summer’s day with a glass of juice, or to take along to school or office in a snack box! You can prepare a batch of this chivda and store it in an airtight container for a week to relish it as and when you wish to.
