Crispy Cornflakes Chivda

Pin It Now!
Ojas - All of 4 months
6 months back we welcomed a new addition to our little family. After the first few months of  hard work, sleep deprivation, crazy routines we are finding our way to better manage ourselves. I am slowly getting a grasp of challenges ahead. Challenges a bigger family gives.Visiting friends and well-wishers of the blog have been wanting to know when i would start posting some new recipes.

While the baby takes an afternoon nap I try to catch up on mail and blogs. I crave for something crunchy, munchy not overly sweet. This chivda made of cornflakes and rice crispies was just what i needed.Its very quick to make and very addictive. Its difficult not to love it. There is not much of a recipe here. You can adjust the quantities as per your taste. We like a chivda with a lots of nuts that is slightly spicy and sweet.
