there are so many recipes which i inherited from my mother, and poha chivda recipe is one of them. according to my hubby, i have exceeded in terms of taste and the way it is prepared, but he still prefers my moms poha chivda recipe. he further explains the reason for it too. according to him, i try to make traditional recipes more practical and instant by skipping or finding alternatives to complicated steps. in this scenario, the thin flattened rice is sun-dried for 30 minutes or 1 hour so it turns ultra crisp and flaky. but in this recipe i have followed a short-cut way. that is, i have dry roasted the thin poha to make it crisp and it hardly takes few mins. basically, it would save time, but would not match the crispiness with sunlight.

furthermore, some easy tips, suggestions and recommendations while preparing poha chivda recipe. firstly, roast the nuts on low flame, else they may burn and taste bitter. also, add dry fruits like raisins, almonds and flax seeds to make it more nutritious. i have used dried red chillis for the spiciness, you can also add  red chilli powder to increase spice level. lastly, store the chivda in an airtight container once cooled completely, else the moisture may turn the poha soggy.
