I learnt this  recipe from my friend Deepali Hegde's mom. Thanks amma for this wonderful recipe. This is one of the very simple and tasty snack recipes. Give it a try have fun. Maja maadi.

Preparation time:  40 min.
Servings: approx 7-8 cups

  • 4 cups thick Pressed Ric/ dappa avalakki
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Khara Sev
  • 3/4 cup Peanut/ground nut/Shenga
  • 1/2 cup Cashew
  • 1/2 cup thin slices of dry Coconut/kobbari
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Now deep fry the curry leaves until it becomes crisp and keep it aside. Please make sure curry leaves are not wet. Wash them and dry before you start frying.
  • Lastly deep fry the pressed rice until it puffs up. Transfer into kitchen towel and remove excess oil.
  • Now take all the deep fried ingredients in a large bowl. Add red chili powder, salt to taste and sugar. Crush the fried curry leaves and mix well. Adjust the salt, sweetness if needed.

  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.
