CORNFLAKES CHIWDA (spicy cornflakes)

You will need:
250 gms cornflakes (plain)

1 tbsp garam masala
A small pinch of hing & turmeric powder
1 tsp raai (mustard seeds)
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp oil
10 curry leaves
Salt to taste


In a big kadhai, take some oil (if you are using non-stick use 1 tbsp oil) and heat it, now go on adding all the ingredients one after the other in the following order :

Raai, chillies, hing, turmeric powder & curry leaves - let it settle, then add - coconut slices (small slices) let them turn golden, then peanuts - salt, sugar, garam masala.

Give it a nice stir, now add - cashews and kishmish.

Finally add the cornflakes give it a nice stir over high flame (taking care nothing at the bottom is burning)

Let it cool a bit, store in an air-tight container.
