  • 1/4 cup Raisin/dry grapes( optional)
  • 1 cup cleaned Curry leaves
  • 1 tsp Red chili powder(to taste)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying.

Method:
  • Heat oil in a pan. Deep fry the Peanut, Cashew, sliced coconut and the Raisin separately until light brown. And trasnfere into kitchen napkins to remove excess oil.

  11. This looks great, but if you want to make a slightly healthier version, put the flat rice in the microwave on high for 30-40 secs and you have nice crisp flakes without the addition of oil.
