Corn Flakes Chivda Recipe (Namkeen) Makai Poha chivda (1)

My mom makes this chivda with dry yellow colored corn flakes aka makai poha or corn poha. These need to be deep-fried in the oil first, then mixed with nuts and spices.

But here I have chosen the healthy version and used the Kellogg's corn flakes cereals. Because I have used cereal, there is no need to deep fry them. Use the cereal directly in the recipe.

During the Diwali festive season, my mom makes many different chivda recipes and this makai poha chivda. When I was kid, I always wait for diwali, so I can enjoy these different chivdas.

I have added amchur powder which gives the slight tang to the chivda. Also sugar is added to balance out the flavors.

Here I have added peanuts, dalia, and cashews. You can adjust the nuts quantity as per your liking. If you like one nut than others then increase its quantity.

How to make Corn Flakes Chivda?

1) Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat. Once hot add mustard seeds. Let them pop.

3) Fry it till they dry out. Because it is dry chivda and we do not want any moisture in it to increase the shelf life of chivda. So make sure that chilies and curry leaves are dried out completely.
