anyway, i would like to add some tips, suggestions and variations to a perfect bombay mixture namkeen recipe. firstly, the mumbai mixture chivda uses fine sev and hence i would recommend to find and use a small holed mould. moreover, while you start dropping these to hot oil, be careful not overlap it too much. otherwise, it may not get cooked evenly. in addition, i would recommend to deep fry these in small batches. secondly, the use of masoor dal is very important for this recipe. you may have not seen this in any other recipe, but adding these makes it unique for this recipe. lastly, store these in an airtight container for long shelf life. you may want to preserve it in a warm and dry place.
