Poha Snack / Chivda / Atukula Mixture

Recipe Source: Show Me The Curry

Serves: 2 people


Thin Poha (Atukulu) --- 1 cup
Salt --- 1/2 tsp
Oil --- 1/2 tblsn
Mustard Seeds --- 1/2 tsp
Peanuts --- 1 tblsn
Dalia --- 3 tblsn
Curry Leaves --- a few
Red Chilly Powder --- 1/4 - 1/2 tsp


We don't like our poha snack to be sweet. So, I didn't add sugar and raisens to it.


Add a cup of thin poha into a microwave-safe bowl.

Microwave it for 1 minute.

Give a good mix and again microwave it for a minute. The poha should by crispy and crunchy. Keep it aside.

Add half a tsp of salt in a motar and crush it to a fine powder with the help of a pestle. Keep it aside.

Heat 1 1/2 tsp of oil in a pan. Turn the heat to medium.

Add 1/2 a tsp of mustard seeds and let them splutter.

Add a tblsn of peanuts and fry till done half.

Add 3 tblsn of dalia, curry leaves and 3/4 th of crushed salt too.

Roast dalia till done.

Add a big pinch (half of the 1/4 tsp) to the pan. Stirfry for a while.

Add microwaved thin poha.

Stirfry for 2 minutes till the turmeric is well coated to the poha.

Transfer it to a serving bowl.

Let it come to room temperature and then serve.

  3. Hi,

    I don't know your (Indian Groceries) name to mention. What you said was correct. Generally people do add sugar to their Chevada. But actually we don't like that flavour so didn't add to my recipe. But I might have kept this as a note to the recipe which I didn't sorry for that.
