Fried poha chivda is the homemade version of an all-time favourite Maharashtrian jar snack – poha chivda. With a mix of sweet, salty and nutty flavours, and a wondrous blend of textures, this chivda is sure to appeal to young and old alike.

It is important to deep-fry each of the ingredients separately and drain them before mixing together. This is because each ingredient is unique in its own texture and thus has to be fried for a particular time. And don’t forget the small quantity of sugar because it is responsible for the unique flavour of the chivda namkeen snack.

This Indian thick poha chivda tastes quite similar to the store-bought one, but has a fresher taste and crispier mouth-feel. Try other jar snack recipes like mini bhakarwadi or whole wheat flour chakli.
