Cornflakes Mixture Recipe - Spicy Chivda | Deepavali Snacks Recipes

Cornflakes Mixture Recipe
I have tasted cornflakes mixture only few times.....Once I have tasted haldirams cornflakes mixture, I love the khatta meeta mixture variety too.Today morning I had a sudden thought why not try baking cornflakes mixture in oven...so that we can munch it guilt-free.Check madras mixture recipe if you are interested to try that.

Last time when I visited Sowmya she gave cornflakes sweet mixture , I loved the taste....But as hubby likes spicy mixture more I added very little sugar only this time..... You can even increase sugar quantity and enjoy it as sweet mixture.

My Notes:

  • Baking time varies for each oven so be careful while baking. Stand beside and bake it stirring every now and then as it gets easily burnt.Yes experience speaks I burnt my first batch then started over again with fresh cornflakes for clicking.
  • Adding sugar is purely optional.
  • If you like garlic flavour just add 1 crushed garlic along with the curry leaves.
  • You can even add 1/4 cup poha bake it the same way and use it.
  • Raisins give a nice crunch while eating so dont skip it.
  • If you have more cornflakes bake them in 2-3 batches.
  • You can even pan fry all the ingredients but baking gives extra crispiness.
  • This keeps well even for 2 weeks when stored in airtight container.

    1. Did you use the dry cornflakes which is meant for frying then that should work fine...but again check ur oven settings n timing as I always say each oven is different.
