Poha Chivda Recipe | Patla poha chivda recipe

Poha Chivda Recipe | Patla poha chivda recipe is a vegan-gluten free, quick to make dry snack made with patla poha/flattened rice, dry coconut, peanuts, dry fruits and some spices.

It’s a must make dry snack recipe during Diwali. It’s very easy, simple and quick to make and it stays good for many days when stored in airtight container.

What I love the most about this recipe is it’s simplicity. It is mildly spicy, has a perfect sweetness, lovely crunch from thin poha & thinly sliced coconut, and nuttiness from dry nuts and peanuts.

Which poha to use to make Poha Chivda Recipe | Patla poha chivda recipe

For making this recipe it’s always good to use thin variety of poha. However, you may use thick variety, but it may not give you the same results.

Likewise thick variety of poha is used  for making Poha Alu Raj Kachori.

Ingredients required

For making this indianised trail mix, poha chivda, the very important ingredient is thin variety of poha.

In addition to that, you will need peanuts, dry nuts like cashew & almonds, sliced dry coconut, roasted chana dal, curry leaves, ajwain/carrom seeds, and powdered sugar. The spices used are turmeric, and red chilli powder.

Many variations of the chivda recipe

Every region has its own recipe variations to make this chivda. Traditionally to make this chivda every Ingredient is deep fried and then mixed together.

This being a very versatile recipe, I have given it my own touch, by not deep frying. This recipe is a mixture of Gujarati & Maharashtrian style chivda recipe.

I have stayed in gujarat in my growing up years and post my marriage I am settled in Mumbai.

So this gives me the opportunity to take liberty of clubbing two cuisines, and we love it the way it turns out.

So here I present my style of chivda with little variations of the authentic recipe.
