Mixture

This savory snack has given an entirely new meaning to the word “’mixture” in India. One of the most readily available snacks that is becoming more popular as time passes. Read on to discover that it is actually quite simple to prepare it at home.

Ingredients

1 piece asafoetida
1kg oil
50g red chillies (dried)
Salt to taste
500g gram flour (besan)
50g pressed rice (aval)
A few curry leaves
Salt to taste
1 potato (sliced thin)
100g peanuts
50g roasted gram (porikadala parippu)
20 cashew nuts (split)
1/2 cup cornflakes

Preparation

In a frying pan, add the asafoetida and sauté. When it is done, add a little oil and fry the dried red chillies.
Add salt and powder it all.
Take half the quantity of the gram flour, add water and knead it until it resembles the batter for string hoppers or idiappam.
Heat oil in a frying pan and let it boil.
Press this dough into a mold as is done for idiappam and fry the strings in boiling hot oil. Remove and drain the oil.
Mix the remaining gram flour and divide it into three portions. Add orange food colour to one portion and green food colour to the other portion.
Press this dough little by little through a larger holed sieve into boiling hot oil.
Keep the mixture on the sieve all through the evening.
Similarly make boondis with the entire dough. Now fry the pressed rice, curry leaves and potatoes in hot oil, remove and drain.
Transfer this oil into another frying pan and fry the peanuts, roasted gram, cashew nuts and cornflakes separately.
The roasted gram only needs to be heated, not fried.
Mix all the ingredients together, sprinkle the prepared chilli powder and mix well.
Add salt if required. Your mixture is ready.
