this is one such south indian mixture recipe which i can proudly say that i have inherited it from my father. he is great fan of this spicy and crispy munching snack and ensures there is always ample stock of it for his evening tea time snack. he even varies it each time and introduces subtle variation each time he prepare. during my college days i use to sit next to him in the kitchen while he used to prepare this. certainly i had all the basics for this recipe, yet i wasn’t clear with this recipe. hence i had to give him a call to note down this recipe when i decided to prepare spicy kerala mixture with video. many many thanks to him for this amazing recipe.

south indian mixture recipefurthermore, some important and critical tips and recommendations to make it perfect and crispy south indian mixture recipe. firstly, while preparing the spicy boondi the consistency is very critical. the batter has to be neither thin or watery, nor thick and has to be in between. also the boondi and omapodi has to be deep fried in a hot vegetable oil or they would form a lump. secondly, you can reuse the same oil for deep frying all the snacks and can be done one after the other. finally make sure to mix all deep fried ingredients when they are warm otherwise spicy kerala mixture may not have the balance in spices.

finally i would like to highlight my other spicy snacks recipes collection with this post of south indian mixture recipe. this includes, instant chakli, butter murukku, ring murukku, nippattu, banana chips, karela chips, potato chips and aloo fry recipe. further do visit my other recipes collection from my blog like,
