A delectable snack made with flaked rice seasoned with a right blend of spices. Use a thin variety of poha commonly known as "nylon poha", to make a crispier snack. This chivda can be stored in an air-tight container for several days. This guilt-free chivda is a good option for a mid-morning or an evening snack.
