Mixed Cereal Chevdo ~ Savoury Cereal Snack

Made n Enjoyed Hello readers,

Few weeks ago myself and my friend Nayna both went to a cupcake decoration class in London. We both really enjoyed ourselves with few other ladies.

On the way back Nayna invited me to her house for lunch..She really spoiled me with an elaborate lunch, in few minutes she cooked Methi Poodla, Rice khichee with lots of dips and pickles..everything was so yummy :),  and also she took out this cereal chevdo for me, I was amazed by just looking at it, when I ate it I was blown away...before I even said anything she filled up a big bag for my family..she told me that this recipe was shared with her by her friend..

Thank you so much Nayna !! Next time it's your turn to come to my house :) Since then I have been making this chevdo every week for my family..also it's not only a hit with my family, but in my daughter's friends family too !!!!!!! there is a little change in my recipe..I did not add turmeric powder and dried red chillies.

You will need:- Basic Cereals

1 small bowl of each around 100 gms
  • Cornflakes
  • Cheerios
  • Bran flakes
  • All bran sticks
  • Rice crisps
  • Shredded wheat
  • Shreddies
  • Multi grain start
  • Almonds
  • Cashew nuts

  • 2-3 tbsp oil
  • 3-4 green chillies sliced ( round )
  • 10-12 curry leaves
  • 5-6 cloves
  • 1-2 small Cinnamon sticks
  • salt to taste
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp citric acid  ( limbu na phool)
  • 1 1/2 tsp red chilli powder

Roast almonds and cashew nuts in the oven or in microwave about 5-6 minutes.
Place all the cereals and nuts in a large bowl.
Grind sugar and citric acid into coffee grinder and grind till it turns into fine powder separately, add three quarter into the cereal. Also add chilli powder and salt in to the cereal, mix very well.
Heat oil in a small pan, add cloves and cinnamon and fry for few seconds, remove from the oil and add into cereal bowl. In remaining hot oil add curry leaves and fry till little crispier, remove and add in to the cereal bowl. In same oil add green chillies and fry till they are crispy ( be careful chilli seeds might pop out ) pour oil and chillies in to the cereal mixture. Gently give it a good mix with your hands, so all the spices and sugar coats over the cereal really well . If the flavouring isn't too strong to how you would like, then add the remaining ground sugar and citric acid. Give another good mix. When the cereal mixtures cool down transfer into a air tight container. Serve on it's own or if you want to have it for breakfast take a bowl of yogurt and have it turn by turn...

Enjoy as much as my family does, I have to warn you guys the above measurement of ingredients is not enough for more than a week..:)
