I had a box of cornflakes that is sitting in my cupboard. Normally we had our breakfast with cornflakes or adding this cereal for making cookies or coating the batter.
So I need to do something to save the cornflakes before it passes its expiry date. What I have in mind were turning them into dessert or a snack.
For long long time. I have prepared a crunchy and savory snack so this is the perfect time to make my favorite Cornflakes Chivda that is made from roasted nuts, roasted gram, curry leaves and spices. You can vary the selection from among peanut, cashew, walnut, pistachio, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds.
Turn this chivda into a healthier version thus cutting out the oil used. Did not fried the peanut and roasted gram in oil but dry roasted them. The only time I used oil when frying the curry leaves along with chili powder and turmeric.
Adjust the chili used according to your heat tolerance and add sugar if you like but love without it.
Cornflakes Chivda to be enjoyed any time and would last for good 1 week if kept in airtight container.
