South Indian Mixture Recipe
Mixture is my fav snack....I love to mix it with curd and eat.I didn't have any plans to try mixture recipe but my sis encouraged me to make mixture at home saying that it is very easy just to mix up all the ingredients once they are ready. So when I made boondi I planned to make mixture as well and here it is for you :)

  1. I made boondi and ompodi a day ahead to save time. Make all the ingredients ready - Deep fry peanuts and curry leaves until crisp, drain in a tissue and set aside. Then fry poha, gram dhal each separately until crisp .You can add a pinch of salt , hing while frying but it is purely optional.

  3. Add red chilli powder / pepper powder and give a quick mix. Can you see who is helping me? :)) If you are adding ribbon pakoda, mullu murukku and thattai just crush them with your hands before adding. You can even transfer this to an airtight container and give a quick shake for it to mix evenly.

Madras Mixture

My Notes:

  • There is no accurate measures for mixture recipe, its just plus or minus the ingredients as we would prefer so be generous in adding more whichever you like it.
  • You can even crush garlic and fry it in oil and add it to the mixture for a garlic flavour.
  • You can skip salt as well as all the fried items already has salt in it.
  • You can additionally add cornflakes and other nuts too.
  • If you like pepper flavour skip red chilli powder and add pepper.
