Mixture / Chevda / Hot mix/ Bombay mix

This is a very famous Indian snack. It is a combination of ingredients( snacks) which is mixed together. Is a perfect snack to have anytime and the best thing is it can be prepared in large quantities and stored in an air tight container for a longer period.

It is our choice to use whatever ingredients we want to add in these snack. So we can add or skip according to our individual/families taste or depending upon what we have at home.

Kara Boondhi - 2 cups
Oma podi/Sev - 2 cups
Murukku - 1/2 cups
Thenkuzhal - 1/2 cup
Fried Thick Aval/puha - 1/2 cup
Fried Peanuts - handful
Fried channa dhal(dalia/pottukadalai) - handful
Curry Leaves - 2 sprig
Red chillies - 3 broken or chilli powder - 1 tsp
Salt - few pinch
Garlic - few flakes(crushed with skin) - Optional use
Fried cashewnuts - few count

Adding crushed garlic( fried in oil) gives out a very good taste to this mixture.

Take a large bowl and add in kara boondhi, crushed oma podi, broken murukku, thenkuzhal , fried aval/puha and mix well.

Add salt and chilli powder or if using red chillies fry first with few drops of oil.
Also add peanuts, fried channa dhal, cashewnuts, curry leaves, garlic all fried in few tsps of oil.

Combine well and store in an airtight container and serve.
