For the second day of Blogging Marathon#22, my mom made this savory crunchy mixture that is perfect for snacking. This is also great as a little treat along with sweets for last minute guests that pop in during the festival season. 

My mom makes quite a few varieties of mixtures with cornflakes, poha (atukulu) and this. today’s mixture consists of kaarappusa/ sev, little maida biscuits, fried peanuts, fried gram dal (putnalu) and curry leaves and is seasoned with chili powder, ground cumin and salt.

Mixture/ Chivda with Kaarappusa (Sev)
Instructions
  1. Make the Sev: Mix all the ingredients with enough water to make a thick batter. Heat oil in a wok for deep frying. Using a janthikala gottam/ cookie press make the sev. Fry until golden brown, remove onto a paper towel to drain.
  2. For the Maida Biscuits: Mix all the ingredients in to smooth dough. Roll into a thin disc, using a sharp knife, cut into diamonds or use a cookie cutter or even the cap of a small bottle to make small round biscuits. Deep fry these until golden brown.
  3. Assemble: To assemble crumble the sev in a large bowl, add the maida biscuits and all the other ingredients, mix well and store in an airtight container. This stays well for at least 10 days.
