Cornflakes Mixture Recipe | Cornflakes Chiwda | Makai Poha Chivda with step-by-step photo and video recipe. Chiwda or sev mixture recipes are one of the popular and sought-after munching snacks. These are typically prepared with deep-fried besan sev noodles along with other condiments, thus making a lip-smacking snack. However, the same chiwda recipes can also be prepared with other ingredients and one such popular hero ingredient is corn flakes or also known as makai poha chivda.

I am a huge fan of munching snacks and I always keep a stash of it for my evening time. However, I typically prepare besan sev-based chiwda mixture, but I always look for other options. One such simple and exciting option is cornflakes chivda where crisp corn kernels are deep-fried and mixed with other mixture ingredients. This is not only easy and quick to prepare, but also a healthy alternative. Having said that, this is not the typical cornflakes used for breakfast. I have particularly got this from an Indian grocery and it is known as makai poha. Basically, it is crispier and thin in texture and expands like a pappad when deep fried. You may use breakfast-based cornflakes but you may not get the same taste and texture. Do try this snack and let me know if you liked it.

Cornflakes Mixture Recipe In addition to these, I would also like to add some more related tips, suggestions and variants to the cornflakes mixture recipe. Firstly, I have deep-fried these makai poha or corn kernels for a crisp and fast turnaround. However, you may also bake these with oil spray on them. Note that, this can take additional 30-40 minutes but is a healthy option. Secondly, in addition to the condiments I have added, you may also add fine sev noodles or even deep-fried moth beans. Typically, these are not added to cornflakes chiwda and are added to the Bombay mixture. But there is no harm in adding it. Lastly, store these in an air-tight container for longer shelf life. You may also use a large steel box with a tight lid for extra crispiness.
