Cornflakes chivda recipe

Cornflakes chivda is prepared from dried yellow colored flakes which are typically deep fried and then used to prepare the chivda. But here I have chosen the healthy version and used the Kellogg’s corn akes cereals. Because I have used cereal, there is no need to deep fry them. Use the cereal directly in the recipe.

  

The cornflakes mixture would be appreciated by everyone, especially kids would certainly love it. This is a sweet and savory chivda. You can alter the spices as per your liking. It’s a great substitute for your regular namkeen. A great Indian snack to be enjoyed at any time.

Serving suggestion: Serve this cornflakes chivda as an afternoon snack or munch them on any time of the day.  You can also send it to school for a short break, as an accompaniment to their tiffin, or serve it as an after-school or between-play hunger chaser.
