Corn Chevda is an easy, tasty and an extremely quick snack that one can make, when the children are clamouring for munchies. One can use a variety of seasonings as per one’s preference. Today I have posted the one which I had learnt from my sister in law Roopa Prabhu. It holds fond memories of my annual trips to Surat with the children during the summer vacations.
The Cornflakes mentioned herein are not the ones that are used as in ready to eat Cereal. These are flakes of corn that are deep fried to a crisp and sprinkled with spices and condiments.
- 250 gms Corn flakes/ Makai
- 100 gms peanuts
- 5 sprigs curry leaves
- Powdered sugar
- Chilly powder or Paprika
- Turmeric powder
- Oil for frying
Heat the oil. Drop in the peanuts and fry them to a golden brown. Drain and keep them aside. Throw in a small fistful of the corn flakes in the hot oil . They immediately puff up. Remove them with a slotted spoon and drop them into a wide mouthed pan. Continue frying in small batches till half the corn flakes are done. Spread the curry leaves and the fried peanuts on the hot corn flakes. Finish frying the remaining corn flakes and drop them on the layer of curry leaves. Sprinkle powdered sugar, salt, chilly powder and turmeric powder as per requirement and mix thoroughly. Allow to cool before storing in an air tight container.
