May this festival be the harbinger of joy and prosperity. As the holy occasion of Navratri is here and the atmosphere is filled with the spirit of mirth and love, here’s hoping this festival will be great for you!
Makai no Chevdo is another lip smacking delicacy I learnt from my mum that I used to devour with great joy every year around the festive season in India.
You will need :-
- 250 g raw cornflakes - makai poha ( do not get cornflakes cereal )
- 100 g raw peanuts
- oil for deep fry
- 2-3 tbsp red chilli powder
- salt to taste
- 3-4 tbsp caster sugar ( boora )
- 1-2 tbsp crushed citric acid ( limbu na phool )
First Heat oil in a deep fry pan on a medium heat. When oil is ready to fry , add little cornflakes at a time in a round sieve.
Cornflakes will puff immediately. Drain the oil from cornflakes with the help of a sieve and put it over tissue paper ..Fry all cornflakes let the tissue paper soak extra oil from them.
On a slow heat now fry peanuts and add them into fried cornflakes.
Now add all the remaining ingredients to cornflakes and peanuts. Mix really well.
Adjust the seasoning.
When cooled keep in an air tight containers.
