Cornflakes Chivda

Cornflakes chivda a crispy spicy and sweet mixture made with corn flakes and few other ingredients and is a perfect snack for Diwali.

I make Cornflakes Chivda in huge batches to last for a week or so but it is always gone in a couple of days and never last long. My kids love this mixture to the core and I always keep the ingredients in my pantry to make it as soon as it is finished.

Yesterday was Diwali and I served it to all the guest who came for Diwali celebrations. This mixture is a huge hit among guests.I could not get a chance to post this recipe before Diwali so here I am posting it anyways.

As the festive season is still here and you can always make this mixture for your family and friends. Normally corn flakes are deep fried for the recipe but I don’t like doing the same as the corn flakes are already crispy so I would just dry roast them to make them a little more crispy.
